I am an Artist whose work is dedicated to the evocation of social empathy and advocacy for individuals who are living within the disabled and LGBT communities. My works are largely figurative and focus on accenting the beauty often forgotten in imperfection. I also employee the use of surrogates and symbols to contextualize my work. Oftentimes I will create an image and deliberately defile and isolate the form to build a narrative that discusses the objectification of individuals from these communities. This, in turns, forces the viewer into questioning their initial perceptions and judgements toward individuals who are seen as different. My sole purpose as an artist is to eradicate ignorance through beautiful forms..
