My art isn't so much inspired by other artists as it is by my own interests in my daily life. I am interested in fashion, music, computer technology, creepy cartoons from Japan, and the minds of the people around me. In the past year and a half my work has been influenced by the medium in which it is presented (the internet) and the exchange that takes place between myself and other web users across the globe when they see and share my images on a digitally lit screen. I am fascinated by the massive world we have created through new social media, where we can be (what we believe to be) our true selves and explore our internal thoughts externally, and see that many of us have the same things on our minds.
