I DRAW...

I tell the stories of my past, present and future through subconscious imagery and process-oriented techniques. Growing up in Austin, Texas at a time of civil transition, my semi-autobiographical stories examine themes of displacement and survival mechanisms. 

 

I draw. I draw visual symbols to create allegories of reality. I draw using a variety of medium that requires self-examination and connection to the medium across specific platforms. The contextual engine that drives my imagery gains its character from the medium that it propels, while line, color, contrast and form steer the direction.  By using complex process-oriented techniques the act of visually constructing my stories is just as important as the stories themselves making my work move freely between private performances and public installation.
