Artist statement

"I consider my art to represent a classical yet modern element. I want to capture the life in today's world and express this to the best of my ability. I like to focus on people and botanicals, as they both are alive, beautiful, and withered. I wanted to specifically display this towards women in my work for this competition, to exemplify just a few emotions some women endure and overcome. ”
