I want the viewers, of my work, to be able to see past the aesthetic and find the freedom to explore their own thoughts and imperfections. To follow the lines I’ve laid and internalize their own emotions and sense of humanity; whether that be individually or communally. I want viewers to experience growth, independence and mental clarity through simplicity.
