My work represents the life and imagination that I grew up with every day. The fantasy of the novels I read, the films I watched, and being immersed in a whole new world allowed my imagination to run wild. As time went on, I found myself with ideas that pertain to my current moments with friends and the time we spend playing Dungeons and Dragons every weekend. Allowing my imagination to find new characters to create and understand them on a personal level. Concepts in a fantasy world is the basis of the art that I create and the pieces today represent those ideas. The imagination that swirls around in my head for years, now has a chance to be revealed in my art.
