My mission is to prepare for graduate school in visual arts and design by establishing a rigorous studio art practice in drawing, printmaking, and graphic design as well as being mentored under current artists and institutions who are engaged in the various dimensions of the art world. The work I create prompts viewers to think deeply regarding notions of self-reflection and spiritual truths present in the world. I desire to communicate that beauty can be found in the smallest and most insignificant of things. Through my life work I present a new and transcending vision for the world achieved through the dynamic synthesis of human culture and the powerful forces of nature.
