“Growing up shy, as far back as I can remember I have always been observant of people around me. I’ve always had a fascination regarding how they reacted in all sorts of situations. I love human emotions. It’s like if someone smiled, I always felt compelled to smile back, or if someone were sad, I felt sad with them. This compassion I have for others is often reflected in my work because it breathes life into my characters. I like that. It’s an important factor to my creativity. I’m inspired by the totality of life, people in general, and everything that makes up human individuality. It also speaks to the kind of person I believe I am.
