I am a versatile creative with expertise in graphic design, illustration, and visual arts.

 

Art and design exist on opposite sides of the same spectrum. The successes and failures of design are easily measured while art evades all attempts at definition. The experience of beauty is a fundamental part of being human. Good design is engaging visual communication across mediums. Art sheds light on the most surreal aspects of being human.

 

As both an artist and designer, I embrace the creative spectrum in its entirety. My approach to making analyzes audience, purpose, process, and context. It acknowledges the necessity of usable, human-centered design and the deeply personal nature of art-making. My work is not either or—it exists within the ever-changing space between. It ebbs and flows between utilitarian functionality and absurdist ideation as needed.

 

I am not simply an illustrator, painter, or designer
