My works consist of paintings, drawings, sculptures, digital works and photography. I worked in different mediums mostly because of personal preference, with each medium comes a different feeling and level of interest. Different mediums allow me to express different emotions and also keep me from feeling monotonous while working. Although my work is focused on one subject, my baby brother, it is not the subject that brings the monotony, but instead the subject that inspires me to break free from it.
His sense of adventure and intrigue to learn new things, as all kids do, inspires my willingness to take chances, try new mediums, think bigger and more complex, or think smaller and simpler. These works show how he has grown and continues to grow and inspire me. They show the connection we have as siblings and the bond we share.
I work primarily from photos and videos I’ve taken of him at the moments I appreciate. These moments remind me how amazing he is and how happy he makes me. Some ideas come to me while I am preparing my canvas and looking through my gallery and see a picture or video of him I like, that makes me smile, and that I can capture a moment from.
With my work I hope to give the audience the same sense of joy and happiness that I experience when I look at pictures and videos and look back at the time I spend with my baby brother. I also hope to bring about a sense or a feeling of familiarity with the audience, through having siblings or being a parent, older sister or brother or family in general.
