Artist Statement: 
My work is based on my daily life, relating certain objects to my past experience by selecting objects that depict a certain event, thought, or memory. Incorporating these personal memories and experiences into my work helps me suggest who I was 
and who I am.

Artist Statement: 
I am a smoker. When I started, I only smoked once a week and thought I could stop anytime. Now I smoke twice a day. I started gathering the wood tips from the Black & Milds I smoked about halfway through the semester. This piece is a reminder that I am still young and can stop before it takes over.

Artist Statement: 
As an artist, I push to connect with the beholder through expressions of emotion within my paintings. Starting my process comes naturally since I simply begin with colors that speak to me…focusing my energy into the application of paint until I interpret a
greater emotional reaction.
