I see the creative process as parallel to the human spirit. All human beings have a story to tell, the same way art carries its own meaning. Every layer behind a person or an art piece reveals its history and intention. I explore this in my work. The combined layers of the piece created present the story itself. The theme, texture, color, line work, patterns, and even the mistakes all have purpose. I believe it is important for the viewer to experience the piece by interpreting its meaning in an individualized way, creating their own unique narrative.
