The Origin of My AestheticsDrawing, and illustration rather than painting was my first "dive" into art. I always assumed that my artwork didn't have any kind of personal meaning to me in the past. However, after careful observation, I've realized a common thread: for me making art is about venturing into another world. I attribute most of my interest in illustration, drawing, and fantastical realms and stories to my early childhood. I now understand that what I was doing was actually creating a fictional simulation of my world.

So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
