About

Who Am I

Artist Statement

As a photographic artist, I have always endeavored to create unconventional and layered images that my audience will connect to on an emotional level.

Through darkness, I aim to tell my story, and the stories of those around me. My artwork is always created with a particular story in mind, however, my images are ambiguous, and can often symbolize many different things to those who view them.

My aesthetic style involves using muted tones, and I often obscure the faces of my subjects. I obscure the face to both add mystery and to focus on creating emotion by using the rest of the body.

The visuals in my images can often be intense and disturbing to the viewer, but I find that this creates conversation, which is one of my main goals with my art.

Through the use of post-processing, my images come alive. I use compositing in most of my images, as well as turn the once colourful image into the almost grey images that they become. I also use textures to add grittiness and more visual depth to each of my images.

My art is ever-evolving, and I aim to forever evolve as a human alongside it.
