Artists Statement

The hero’s tale is an intriguing concept; it is a reoccurring theme embedded in nearly every human story describing a downtrodden yet virtuous figure and their path in overcoming obstacles to arrive at success. This narrative describes the core characters journey of all religions, countless mythologies, and all of the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter series.
