“My goal with art and design is to evoke a refined sense of awe. When I create a piece, whether it is a painting, a 3D-printed shoe, or even a custom piece of furniture, I envision the final product in its entirety. I curate every step of the process including the initial research, concept development, production, and final composition in order to achieve a unique and glorious experience.”
