Artist Statement

I am inspired by everything in my life, from the activities I do to my friends and family, and places I’ve been. I especially enjoy drawing figure skaters and by baby cousins. Previously, my art would mainly be sketches and watercolours but recently I have discovered copic pens which have increased the use of vibrant colour in my work. I have been working on a series featuring figure skaters that inspire me and I’m looking forward to getting to do more paintings soon. Next year I am thinking about doing a study on fairy tales, playing off of this idea by incorporating ideas of real life, using irony, or putting a darker twist on it.
