“I aim to manipulate viewers of my work into reacting with hysterical laughter, discussing their feelings and sharing stories with each other. I utilize the formal qualities of art to camouflage the materials I use and emphasize the unique form of each piece. I enjoy creating an experience for viewers and hope to ignite a feeling of nostalgia, but also inspire them to share with others.”
