“I get asked the meaning behind my murals and the messaging that I paint. The simple answer is that I paint for myself and what I mean by that is that it’s something that I needed to see, read or be reminded of. We are mirrors to each other and if I needed this message then maybe someone else did too.

The difference is we need it for different reasons. This particular piece is for me to know that I belong here doing what I’m doing. Sharing my art with the world. To someone else, it may mean something a little bit different but nonetheless impactful to them. Never doubt your existence or forget that you belong here and now."
