Creating art started out as a hobby that I enjoyed doing. Before becoming a university student, my relationship with art was not at all formal. I never had any epiphanies that changed the way I viewed the phenomena of the world and I certainly wasn't the tortured artist with massive existential questions that I tried to answer through my work. I simply loved what I did and did what I love, and I was content with that until recently. I realized that I wanted to create with purpose, or rather that I had to find one in order to become better.
I am currently a rising sophomore in the Brown + RISD Dual degree program with plans of majoring in Illustration and Cognitive Science. While my exact goals as a designer are still nebulous, I continue to make and therefore continue to grow.
