About me

I’m an artist. That’s not the entirety of who I am, it’s actually a very small part. Art is interpreted in so many different ways, the way I see it, everyone is an artist. The businessman constructing the perfect suit, the builder creating a wall, the cleaner making a kitchen spotless. Everyone who has ever taken pride in something they’ve done is an artist.
