Artist Statement and Bio
As an artist, I find myself intensely drawn to the process of making and creating things. I love seeing my art form from imaginative ideas and sporadic inspirations. I find just as much joy in the creative process as I do in the finished product. My mixed media art is a testament to the usage of all the tools and mediums available, to create a fresh prospective and an infinite number of possibilities. I enjoy using collage, screen printing, alternative printing processes, patterns, stencils, spray paint, painting, and graphic design together to create multi-dimensional symbolism in my work.
I was born and raised in Colorado. As a youth I was interested in art and fascinated with it’s freedom and creative. At 12 years old, I began to skateboard and that continued to the present day. My formal education in art started in high school where I was inspired by, teacher and international artist, Floyd D. Tunson. Around this time I also developed an interest in street art which has influenced my art in many ways. I then attended Community Collage in Colorado Springs for graphic design. My work in the design and printing industry has also had a profound influence on my art and helped lead me to a more mixed-media approach to my art. I moved to Northern California in 2009 to further my art career and have been warmly welcomed by the local community.
