“I decided I was an artist when I was in kindergarten and it took me about 27 years to finally believe it.”
I would definitely say I've had a lifelong and passionate love affair with making stuff. But then again, I've had an equally lifelong and passionate love affair with Cap'n Crunch. Yup, the cereal. After years of putting up with the Cap's bittersweet love, I finally hold the secret wisdom of being able to eat those sugary, golden nuggets without cutting up the roof of my mouth. Maybe one day I'll write a book called "Zen and the Art of Eating Cap'n Crunch". OMG. That's so the *new* title of my memoirs. It's a fitting replacement for "Jurassic Park Scarred me for Life".
Oh right. Back to the art stuff. I dig on raw line and the unexpected and infuse my work with modern color, original typography, and old fashioned hand drawn imagery. The end result is art with hints of romance, whimsy, inspiration, and lots of soul.
I enjoy the whole art making process and can't see a time when I would ever stop dreaming and creating. I love being inspired by my life, my environment, and the work of others, then making something completely unique that can inspire others in turn. I like being a part of that endless creative cycle.
