"My artist alias '1043' represents the specific time on the clock that I have seen repeatedly stand out since I was a child. I have fondly thought of this as my subconscious showing itself. I have since taken it as a moniker as it serves as a reminder for me to stay connected to my subconscious mind and follow my intuition in my art practice."
