My intentions for when I finish school is to study fine arts. I am wanting to explore my options and pursue a career as a tattoo artist, along with exploring curating and illustration. What inspires me to create artwork is society, people and a state of mind. Culture is very important to me; this is due to having immigrant Italian family that has helped me embrace my heritage. What can people learn from art? I believe that people need to realise that art can be a statement, a story, a cultural tradition or all of above.
