Artist Statement:

Sometimes I have big emotions. Huge! And usually, they make me want to explode. Sometimes with anger, sometimes love, and sometimes they make me want to burst out laughing. So I found a way to express them, so they don’t overpower me. I put them on paper. I think that the day I made the My Emotions drawing, I was mad at my mom for making me come to work with her. So I scribbled. All people out there who have big emotions, or bad things in their brain, I feel you. 

So go on, have some emotions. Let it out. And buy this stuff, please. Thanks!
