My work is a mix of many things, and created in a number of ways. Sometimes it's a visceral exercise where I am in a zone fueled by loud music, emotion and caffeine, and other times it's created more as a meditation in an slower and organized fashion. Either way, the work is very much created in the moment, pulled from many visual references and from many areas of interest. My professional background is graphic design and branding, and keeps me oriented around color, shape, images, and typography. I love creating visual stories in my work, and ofter I have no idea what the piece will be or what it will be about when I begin. As the piece evolves the story unfolds and the work comes to life. Part of my process is in the naming of pieces, and as a lover or names, words and language, I often feel that a piece is not done until the name is crafted. I follow my interests and can be very curious in my themes, though the ideas that I keep coming back to is self exploration, self reflection and discovery. I sometimes feel that every piece is a self portrait in some way, even the scribble, spots, squares and circles. They all say something about me and move love of the visual art, organization of the page and the deep connection I feel to color and form.
