“Eye contact can be uncomfortable because
it can reach into the depths of the soul and reveal
the unknown. I like to explore the
imaginary world behind a passing glance through my study of
photomanipulation, especially surreal
photo manipulation of eyes. My art is influenced and
inspired by emotions from my childhood
and by the feelings I experience daily when I make eye
contact with strangers.Although photomanipulation is my main
medium, as a young artist I am
still exploring my artistic reach, so I
produce work in traditional drawing, photography, and
makeup art. Often I will combine these
skills to produce a finished digital work. I have had work
displayed in Springville Museum of Art
in Utah, and I have designed a logo for a Brewery in
Denver Colorado. I hope to someday share
my artistic exploration by traveling the world and
other artists, gaining inspiration from that experience.”
This artwork is a statement against how art can be forced into a tiny box with specific rules and regulations defining it. It is the feeling of creativity being sucked away and replaced with the world of black and white.
Burning passion, fiery anger, flares of joy... these are all a part of the human condition. "Ember" is meant to capture these emotions in physical form, showing how it can eat away or create beautiful renewal
When things seem to be falling apart, let go of the darkness welling up inside. Take a chance to become something beautiful. Chaos is not the end.
Greed, a primal instinct of selfish desire to aid your survival, yet through this instinct truly valuable things, such as love and friendship, are cast away... leading to self destruction
Created in a time of sorrow, "Mourning" is a tribute to the sadness of losing childhood heroes, David Bowie and Alan Rickman. The overwhelming sadness sparked by these events lead to this work of art.
The perfect example of how a venemous mind is reflected in the windows to the soul. It is also a reminder of how cruelty is often the result of inner turmoil, shown in this as a physical wound.
I cannot ignore the root of my existence. "Revelations" is an exploration of my innermost being, and the belief, hope, and memories that define who I am. Deeply rooted in my religious background, it shows the grace in kindness and faith.
