He asks viewers to take time to reflect upon their connection to the universe around us and all that connects us. Sculptures portraying the artist from youth to old age will presented. His digitally painted portrait series is a reflection on impermanence from both his perspective and the perspectives of individuals in different fields of study and profession. He plans to pursue a career in art education.
