I draw influence from the people who are close to me; my family and friends. The people we are given or choose to love are full of inspirational stories whether the feelings we create are beautiful or tragic or somewhere in between.
I illustrate on my forms drawing inspiration from my emotions, community and surroundings. My observations manifest as figures or functional wares, becoming pieces that grow in tandem with my social and emotional intelligence.
I use color to represent the chaotic mind space that is our feelings. These are a fun approach to the wide range of emotions we display day to day.
