I've been interested in history for as long as I can remember. It's always fascinated me how one event can change the course of so many lives, and it's made me curious about those lives themselves.
I've always loved art that makes you think—and maybe even ask questions you never would have thought to ask otherwise. That's why I'm so drawn to pop art and its ability to make connections through bold colors and simple shapes. But what if we could use these elements to tell a story? What if we could use them to inspire empathy for people who lived in different times and places from us? How powerful would that be?
That's why I started my series of historical events created as pop art with a modern perspective. My goal is to inspire universal empathy with a boldness of color that brings out the power of perception.
Photo manipulation is something I've been doing since I was little. Adding color makes it pop, and the experimentation is endlessly fascinating.
