These paintings explore the human body in surrealist environments. I aim to tell a story, or at least suggest a moment within one. Some may evoke emotions, others may contain messages.
Campaign for non-profit organization OUT Miami. Message: Everyone can be a philanthropist, not just people who donate money. I wrote inspirational quotes which begin within the person and end outside of them, as a way to metaphorically represent the inner potential of everyday people, and their external effect on the world around them.
I use mark-making as a way to document my sensory experiences; a meditation. I work on paper and directly on the wall, and I do not limit myself to conventional materials. My wall art pieces are impermanent, they are created for a period of time, yet taken down at the end of an exhibit.
I am influenced by Buddhist philosophies of non-attachment to material objects, to meditation through conscious action, to the inevitable change of our daily lives, and to the cave paintings of prehistoric times. Their transience is reminiscent of our actual lives, where we see people and things come and go, live and die, grow and change; nothing remains the same.

Working as the Creative Director for Palate Magazine, I am in charge of the overall aesthetic and Brand. I have selected typography, color combinations, magazine cover design template, and social media aesthetic as part of Palate's brand. I want color with a high contrast of white, to suggest elegance with a playful attitude.
