'Meeting Yourself', acrylic and acrylic pen on canvas, 23 x 30 inches
"I see all of existence as a single great dance of matter and energy. Ever-flowing, our forms are made, unmade, and then remade in a flash. Through lines and organic forms, I share this vision of life as an interconnected and constantly changing experience. Whether through canvas, mural, body art, or art objects, I aim to create work that is accessible to all, and leaves viewers with some of the wonder, beauty, and awe that I live my own life with. I believe that the purpose of making art is to convey the beauty of every human being and all the existence beyond race, skin color, gender, and language. I believe that art is universal beauty that can be transmitted through time and space. Essentially, each of us
understands, feels and sympathizes with the beauty of all humans and all living beings, if we choose to. I want to share this feeling and my belief with all the people. Because it’s our instinct to feel the beauty, to feel art. I want to make art which has universal beauty. The art which make us feel infinity."
