I was seven years old when my mother found me painting over her wedding dress, it was a perfect blank surface!
I like experimenting by using uncommon mediums, Up-cycled materials, and color. That is how I create my work. which is mostly textural.
My characters for the most part emphasize the idea of no specific gender or race, sometimes I specify genders when wanting to make a statement about something taboo to general society or if a commission. requires it.
Some of my work is tactile for two reasons.
1- I want to include visually challenged people to experience my work.
2- I want people to realize that what they are touching is some material that should be recycled to avoid more pollution into the environment.
I approach my Digital Art in the same way I do with my Up-cycled work. Using a process to create layers and textures to bring depth to it.
Working digitally has allowed me to find a great way to reduce my carbon footprint, which has been my message though my "up-cycled" materials work anyway. So I say that works perfectly for me.
When creating, my thought process is attached to a narrative. "I don't just paint, I tell a story."
