I would describe my art as journal entries that give a glimpse into moments or memories, interactions and experiences. My process is more stream of consciousness rather than planned out, with a pull toward design. I’m heavily influenced by nature, although that doesn’t always show in my art work. I’d say my art is symbolic, nostalgic, philosophical, moody, childlike, and soulful. My art has been featured at galleries, stores and pop up exhibitions all over Ventura County and the Central Coast. I’m currently the Artist In Residence at The Studio Interactive.
