I've always had an interest and proclivity towards creating art and designing things; whether it's through illustrations, paintings, screen printing, graphic programs, photography, or video editing. My father is also an artist so he supported my goals to better develop an uninhibited creative way of thinking, with an additional understanding of spacial awareness. It was fascinating to know that I could create a piece that could potentially trigger negative and positive responses or memories in other people's psyches. As an illustrator, I enjoy using the mediums specified above to tell a story, occasionally fabricated and other times factual, as well as highlight opinions that I hold to be self-evident.
In my graphics and advertising freelance work, I carefully listen to the objectives of each business owner or individual/s involved. This prompts the start of my process where I start to problem solve, make notes, sketch out ideas, research, and then successfully make these concepts a reality for them and their brand. I enjoy helping people manifest these concepts in an efficient and timely way. The visual arts aspect of branding takes an extremely positive toll on consumer interest, company relevance, & over-all increased revenue.
The topics that inspire my own art revolve around the demise of modern culture, classist stereotypes, a dystopian future, and past historical events.
