“I am a mixed-media artist and photographer based in Philly, always looking for new boundaries and buttons to push. I am driven by the belief that art is meant to be felt, not understood.

This piece is a meditation on how fleeting inspiration can be. Anyone can have a bright idea, but then comes the hard part: following through. Sometimes an idea drifts away on its own, sometimes it's ignored or neglected, sometimes it's purposely smashed to bits. I took these photos during my brief stint in art school, where the pressure to live up to someone else's ideas instead of your own crushes many an artist's will to thrive. How do you keep the light on and shining bright? I've been working on figuring that out ever since.”
