Someone telling me when they looked at my work it made them smile and feel happy and not afraid to express themselves.
What/who influences you?
Ive started to pull from the past of my life and the ones around me. Even the most random things like a piece of paper on the floor, and seeing how i can interpret that into my own mind.
What makes your work necessary (to you, to others, to the community)?
To show everyone that it's alright to be yourself, if it makes you happy do it. no matter what someone says or feels about it as long as you love it do it
