My art is a reflection of observations from myself, my surroundings, and my life experiences. When approaching a new concept or idea, research is inevitable. I tend to have multiple ideas in regards of how I am going to construct and complete my work. More often than not, my projects do not end up as intended due to pure experimentation. I let my work evolve on it’s own making each work entirely unique. Mixed media is the core foundation of my work which further branches off into drawing, digital media, photography, and painting. This gives myself the chance to explore the relationships between 2D and 3D.
I believe that art making is important due to the full releasing qualities that can stem from each individual process. Art in general is both an intimate and vigorous human experience. Personally, exposure to the arts as a whole makes my experience that much more vibrant.
