In my own words:
"I used to slap stickers all over the furniture in my room growing up. I wanted to take the bland, plain functional desk, cabinet, drawer knob, whatever & make it more....make it cool, dreamy, a story from stickers, or make it into whatever the hell was going through my small head at the time.
I just wanted everything around me that was bland to be badass. That's what I always want my art to be."
