My interests in the arts were inspired by my parents. My parents introduced my brothers and I to museums and galleries, supporting the arts of all cultures. I work with the intricate detail of design mixed with the three-dimensional mass of found materials. I use the objects as I would with lettering, cropping, and composition in Graphic Design. I sample ideas, colors, words, and visuals of anything and everything around me. I can relate to the musician who uses turntables to blend or sample words, sounds, and noises in the hopes of creating an incredible song. I have always enjoyed creating artwork and look forward to developing my technique and style.
