When creating an image, the content is something that evolves by each shape, flat color, and symbol that emerges.

My process is spontaneous yet methodical at the same time. I try not to let content lead the process, instead, the placement of shapes, the spacing of patterns, and the relationship between color are all deeply considered decisions throughout the drawing and painting process.

My goal for the final product is to create an image that is dynamic and sound, yet playful and eye catching. I am inspired by other cultures and take pleasure in seeing them through the lens of my own, interpreting other’s experiences through visual language allows me to share my own personal history with a greater understanding and deeper appreciation of another’s.

I create from my own unique perspective using obsession, humor and sorrow with the intention of empathizing and connecting with the viewer on an emotional and perhaps nostalgic level.
