process is an integral part of my work. i combine techniques of collage, silkscreen printing, photography and graphic design. i layer images, colors, words, patterns and design to express my ideas. balance, energy and movement are underlining concepts. my goal is to make the work come alive.
i have done ceramics, printmaking, fashion design, photography, painting and graphic design. each of these informs my work today.
in preparation for my work, i research everything from japanese design to graffiti and literature to signage. i have a long list of artists who inspire me. When i am lost, i find inspiration in nature.
i enjoy the creative process. i enjoy seeking out new ways to work. there is a great deal of science and technical skill involved. it is this knowledge and ability combined with passionate and spiritual aspects of art making that create something special. i am in pursuit of making art the way i have to. there really is no other way.
