BFA Drawing/Painting . University of Texas at El Paso 2011


My artistic vision is rooted in communicating my ideas about ego, memory, spirituality, and the deterioration of morals. I am interested in describing the multiple facets of connection vs. isolation and emotion as they relate to identity. Much like the human psyche, I often create pieces that are intimate or fragile. Working with layers allows me to use a variety of materials to create various elements of depth perception. Leaving a visual trace allows me to establish a connection to the past. Photography is immensely important in my creative process. Vintage analog cameras introduce an alternate perspective of reality, which is more specifically connected to memory. The grain and texture of film captures a dream-like mood and atmosphere, which lends itself to my process. My goal is to shift towards creating interactive, immersive, installation art.
