STATEMENT OF ART:
I believe art means making something new, and creating something that the world has never seen. Art is mix and matching new materials to create something fun. To me, art is something I can share these new designs with. Sometimes, I need to try things upside down and flip things inside out to bring new ideas. During this process is when I feel the most happiness. This is Art.
