Life is an adventure and I am an explorer.
My creative process is fueled through self-discovery and reflections my observations, often finding new context from dreams and historical content. Photography is a translator of my thoughts. With digital tools and mixed media explorations, I process my database of mental sketches to communicate visuals from personal experiences.
