  • In all of my artistic practice, I strive to have a growth mindset in order to focus on improvement rather than perfection. When I’m in the studio I try to approach every new painting with a willingness to learn more about the painting process as well as a desire to learn more about myself. I try to be kind to myself by giving myself seemingly microscopic tasks when tackling a big project so that I can break it down into manageable pieces. When I want to create a new painting I try to keep my eyes only on the task right in front of me so that I don’t become overwhelmed by the scale of the project ahead.
  • This piece expresses how an environment can leave a lasting impact on us, bonding with us on a spiritual level in a way that allows us to learn something new about ourselves. We often strongly identify with our surroundings growing up and this can influence what places bring us the most joy and introspection later in life. But we can also find a deep appreciation for new environments where significant moments take place. There are times when every aspect of a moment is perfect and this amount of bliss creates a strong tie to what surrounds you. Everything from what you see, to what you smell, to what you touch gets imprinted into your memory and this place is now a part of who you are. This location has now been saturated with incredibly strong emotions and it is almost impossible to separate the two. The joy you feel when you remember a perfect moment in a perfect place is almost intoxicating and it inspires you to explore and seek out more moments of bliss and perfection.
