I started painting again two years ago. I stopped painting after high school and didn’t go to art school. It was hard to get back into it; I doubt what I’m doing often. But my years in the city would feel aimless without it.

Are you drawn to my paintings’ colors or repulsed by their saturation? Do you feel a longing for community or a place for respite? Do they make you feel comforted or lonelier?

My mom told me she loves my paintings. Parents often spare judgement on their child’s artistic impulses. She thinks I’m talented.

My most recent artwork has been focused on transforming architectural forms. In these large-scale works, I apply imagery to the exteriors and interiors of buildings. I use visuals that refer to things which are faraway and untouchable, like skies, stars, and fire. The new structures speak about the unknown and wonder, and merge the familiar with the inaccessible.
