How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"I want my art to be a tool to serve humanity instead of something whose sole purpose is to be visually or aesthetically pleasing. Although that is an important aspect of art, I want my work to serve a greater purpose than surface beauty. It needs to be a statement, a call to action or an expansion of awareness that can be directed towards pertinent issues of our time. For this reason, a lot of my work deals with the natural world. My work’s purpose is to imbue imagery of the natural world with humanity and life in order for our species to move in a direction where we treat the planet with the same reverence we’d want for ourselves."
