My life revolves around creativity, not just in practicing visual art forms, but also by using creative energy as a means to support and inspire communities. Everyday I make art, whether that is grinding on a piece of metal, painting, clicking away at the mouse designing graphics, or mentoring a kid who needs help on a project, I engage in creativity everyday of the week. I do not claim a particular art-form as my form of practice. I believe that working exclusively in one form will be very limiting to my creativity. The more knowledge I have, the better I can imagine, design, and fabricate.
New technologies and processes are being created and experimented with everyday, and I’m eager to discover them and find ways in which they can expand my ideas. I embrace this culture of art-making and challenge myself to find ways to combine skills and use of materials to create artwork that speaks its own language. Repurposing materials is something that also encourages my artistic growth. It provides unforeseen aspects of conception and stimulates critical thinking to work through creative challenges.
