As a multi-disciplinary creative, I strive to challenge my artistic growth and development. It is essential to be surrounded by opportunities that push my creative horizons. Within each opportunity, there is a commitment to evolve my artistry from what it was before. Every one of those evolutions pioneer curiosity and passion within myself for more.
My artistic journey is far from linear. There is no end-point or moment where I can say “I’m finished.” The curiosity that comes with this journey is perpetual. It travels alongside me, forcing my creative boundaries to expand. Ultimately, my wish is that never-ending curiosity. To wonder and discover, then wonder some more.
I have freelanced with independent and corporate businesses in roles involving logo identity, graphic design, photography, and illustration. My personal work tackles the ongoing climate crisis through abstract paintings and sustainably made tapestries. These works are contrasted with character designs and illustrations based off of video games I have played and adored over the years. I have also illustrated three children’s books—one that discusses the battle for inclusion and diversity. Each of these contributions have been a commitment to making positive change in both myself and the people around me.
My work has been featured in literary and social platforms such as annual art publications, Pratt Institute Archives, Pratt’s annual Design Show, and Behance.net. My children’s books are showcased at local bookstores across New Jersey and sold through Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and Google Books. My art, that once was a hobby, has morphed into a profession and personal obligation. The entirety of my artistic journey is helping me to fulfill more of that obligation and help shape the way we communicate design.
