I am a mixed media and sculptural artist working with a variety of materials between my two mediums. I use acrylic, graphite, printing ink and techniques, and found materials, including a mixture of different images in a collage type of manor on both paper and canvas. My sculptural work uses mainly clay and found materials, which consist of both natural and man made objects. My artwork has an abstract quality, with distinguishable layers of reality, emotion, and obscurity mixed throughout. I am interested in topics relating to history and current events, science, culture, and the environment. My artwork tries to analyze these topics both within their own states as well as through the relationship that human nature plays while interacting with each one. I enjoy the process of collecting, discovering, and creating through the ideas and various imagery that surrounds me, and I hope that my artwork comes across as interesting, challenging, and thought provoking in the end.
