I focus on different styles, different mediums, and an endless amount of conceptual thought. You may find my attempt at a likeness of a historical figure in a way that may or may not be flattering. The main focus is an idea that utilizes visual icons for emphasis. I don’t consider myself a social realist, even though it is a satisfying art genre. Instead, I wish to view the world with silent, hidden visual meanings within the work.
