My work is about relationships and the emotions that stem from them.
It is about feeling what I see in those relationships.
It is about seeing what I feel about them.
It is my interpretation of the world around me.
My work is about being an identical twin.
It is about similarities and differences.
It is about comparisons and assumptions.
It is about looking deeper than a first glance.
It’s about how we can be different and the same at the same time.
All of us.
My work is about trials and tribulations.
It is about growing through and out of some experiences.
It is about failing at others.
My work is about me thinking out loud to you
