In my own words:
"I used to slap stickers all over the furniture in my room growing up. I wanted to take the bland, functional desk hutch, cabinet, side of a drawer & make it more than what it was intended. Make it cool, dreamy, a story from stickers, or whatever the hell was going through my small head at the time.
I just wanted everything around me that was bland to be bad ass. Thats what I always want my art to be."
