Time Passion Space Desire
Passion drives me. Passion for art, fashion, beauty, time, and space. While I was born with the passion and the hand-eye coordination to draw just about anything I look at. My life experience has led me to create the things I do in the way I do.
I grew up in a tiny town in northern New York but always longed to be in NYC. At 17, I moved to NY and attended Pratt Institute. After one semester I decided I needed to explore my person before I continued. I spent three years traveling the country and experiencing life in a way I couldn't have if I was in college.
Upon my return to Pratt I was hungry to learn as much as I could. I studied painting and printmaking but also dabbled in fashion and architecture. All of these pieces combined to help me shatter what I had previously believed was my creative path. My artwork grows from the human form and my obsession with desire. Making realistic drawings and paintings of things that do not exist as well as highly stylized drawings of clothing I will design. I create work that ties all of my interests into one.
In the past four years I have embraced my love of fashion both mens and women's clothes. I have embraced gender fluidity and created a space in my life to dress however I want whether that is in traditional men's or women's clothes. I strive to be a walking version of the art I create.
