My works consist of a compilation of various mediums in both two dimensional and three dimensional forms such as: painting, photography, and sculpture. Most of the time I enjoy working in three dimensional forms, creatively exploring different techniques with various materials and letting my work evolve intuitively. I also enjoy the use of color recognizing that it can alter and/or change a feeling or emotion of a piece.
As my work evolves I decide intuitively what colors are appropriate. Color is very important in my work because it helps visually strengthen the feeling or emotions I am trying to convey in my artwork.
I find that the process of creating a piece is just as important as the finished artwork. For instance, I enjoy experimenting with different materials and techniques and learning how each material can be used to my advantage when creating work of art. After I have decided what it is that I want to make, I then decide what materials are most beneficial to accomplish my idea.
My ideas stem from inspiration. Life and the human being are my inspirations. I am fascinated by the way the human being species uses our five senses to understand life, and our individual actions in it. Each of us have different ways on how we perceive it based on our own experiences. I like to make works that are based via the experiences that depict the correlation between our thoughts and actions. I feel this is what captivates and sets human beings apart from other species.
