I was born in Miami, Florida but grew up in Indianapolis, primarily in Broad Ripple. Ever since I was a child I was obsessed with drawing. I was involved in the arts through out my time at Broad Ripple High School, studying AP Visual Art. I got my first bit of experience in the real world when in my sophmore year I helped create the mural outside Einstein’s Bagels in Broad Ripple. I have always loved illustrating unique and mysterious imagery, creating a concept hidden within the subject
I primarily work in watercolors creating strong and captivating imagery. My technique is aggressive and loose, having no rhyme or reason for color choice but still being very dedicated to light and shadow to give the subject matter it’s 3 dimensional form. Drawing is just as important in my work as the painting, I will sometimes draw with the watercolor in certain places among the composition.
As far as subject matter, I am always looking for a clever way to communicate the concept across to the viewer. Visual puns, symbolism, and surrealism are just a few ways I create a strong conceptual image. Many pieces incorporate the human form. There’s just something about expression and gesture in the human form that captures my attention and keeps me experimenting. At the beginning of each piece I ask my self, “what is it that I am trying to say to the viewer? and how can I say it in a new way that hasn’t been said before?”
