Divergent explores the human condition, and one of the major themes that I focus on is the impact of societal expectations on men. The weight of traditional gender roles can be suffocating for those who don't identify with the majority, and I aim to give voice to those who have been silenced by cultural norms. Through my art, I hope to start conversations that lead to change and a more equitable society.

Evocative of the calm and contemplative nature of self-reflection, Introspection 4 is a gentle ballad of soothing night-time colour hues and soft brushwork set off with some delicate decorative linework.
Not shown here is the custom frame in matching colours with glass.

What would angels think of our puny attempts to reach beyond the confines of our Earth... would they experience bemusement in their inscrutable minds, gazing benevolently down from their celestial realm?
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
My big sister is a ballet teacher and my childhood was filled with recitals and concerts and an appreciation for the years of hard work, tears and dedication that goes into classical dance training. I couldn't help but notice how fewer boys undertake this career path, which in a way makes them all the more to be congratulated. I decided to dedicate this small collection (and other works) specifically to the "danseur" (male ballet dancer).
