I like to classify my artwork under a word I invented called “Citruquinz”. This is a word that is a combination between the words citrus and sequins, which represents the color and feelings I get from my artwork. I enjoy using bright colors and illustrating scenes that a person would not see in real life, except perhaps in their dreams. Every character in my artwork has a story, therefore I like to often just give enough visual information for a viewer to wonder what that story could be.
