"My work is inspired by conceptual abstractions. How do I understand conceptual abstraction. Abstraction is the process of isolating, separating certain parts of reality from all other things. My art is formed by uniting these abstractions into a idea/concept, and trying to think of them differently, expanding them, growing them into something wonderfully unique, and individualistic. This uniqueness comes from how I understand myself and how I wish to present this self to others. Art isn't for me about presenting another persons ideas - for why would I want to copy their ideas, I would only be copying who they are and their work. And that is not how I understand art. I understand art to be a one of a kind thing - not a one size fits all."
