Artist Statement - Forest City Fusion Art Exhibit
My lifelong quote is, “What is life without art?” I see art in every aspect of our lives. Everyday life inspires me to create art and people are my muses as they interest me the most. For this exhibition I decided to paint a new series called “Girls with Attitude.” In my opinion, the girls are under tremendous social status pressure caused by all social media platforms. Social media infiltrates every aspect of their life; my focus is on accepting the way they look as they are, to be unapologetically bold and proud! My ultimate goal is to keep that beauty.
