From the artist: “Art in the most general sense is what I love to do. Ever since I was a little kid I loved to be creative and use my imagination to make stuff just for the fun of it, which is exactly what the definition of art is, the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination. There is a feeling of enjoyment I get while creating things, and when I complete those creations and see the final product, I feel satisfied. Of course, there are some things that I will make and feel as though it’s not good enough to be seen, or just in bad taste, but even then, I know that the process was fun for me because in the end I did it for the sake of art. When creating relatively anything, I honestly just wing it. Kind of like a ‘go with the flow’ mentality. Ideas start to pop into my head and I bring those ideas to life one way or another. Of course there is a lot that goes into different artistic practices and processes, but no matter what I always end up just diving straight into things without a clue as to which direction I will take. There is no other occupation that could bring me to my full potential and create as much opportunities as art does, which is why I will continue to use my creative skills and imagination until I simply cannot.”

From the artist: “With all of the sad and depressing things that are going on and being addressed to us on an otherwise daily basis, the reason I make art is to bring happiness to the public eye as well as myself. Whether it be to distract from a stressful and disheartening time or to simply add an extra smile to one’s already great and progressive day, I wish for my visually bright and colorful illustrations and photographs, most of which typically consist of animals or animated and stylized characters, to be published for the world to see so as to break away from the darker themes and topics of our world today."
The event will take place at Holy Family University’s Education Technology Center (ETC) in the lobby and art gallery. Parking is available to all in the Campus Center parking lot in the visitor section without restriction.
