My original inspirations relied heavily on anime, Tamara De Lempicka and Mark Ryden. I loved the creative expression of the Harajuku kids in Tokyo. They filled me with such hope and excitement. Originally the intention of my paintings was just about creating a strong image, purely visual. I wanted to impart a modern tongue-in-cheek humor, incorporating my experiences.
As time goes on I find myself relying less on the narrative and more on the emotive. I hope that my work can connect with people on different levels. I’m trying to harness a single moment in time, an emotional response, seemingly insignificant gesture that can mean so much.
If you have a creative impulse, whether it be art, music, writing, theater, cooking, whatever — express it. Don’t let your own hang-ups, caution, fear of failure or ridicule stop you.
