As an artist I see the world differently. When it comes to how I see myself, I see only the very things I try to hide from others. In my self-portraits I attempt to express my adventurous side and I am not afraid to show my emotions. As someone who has been through many difficult times I am overwhelmed by a multiple of emotions. Anger, grief and sadness are the most dominant of emotions in my self-portraits. I use my pain to communicate.
