Artistic Statement

The work that I create is very much so intuitive and emotional. A lot of the work that I produce is sensual and often humorous which derives mostly from my personality. I am often inspired by hybrid forms of art that are unconventional or unique in its function, whether it be as simple as applying illustration on surfaces to shed new light in its function or creating unique artist editions that is one of a kind. The materials I work with varies an is often involved in a course of exploration based on the subject matter and conceptualization of the project-- as of late I have been heavily working with paint, wood, ceramics, sculpture and textiles.
