Tell us a little about yourself:
I was born on the East Coast and moved around when I was a kid, but I spent most of my life growing up in Southern California. I originally thought I wanted to go to college to study business but in the midst of my calculus and economics courses, I discovered architecture in a course called ‘Visual Studios’. I have been obsessed ever since.
What kinds of art do you create?
I like to explore all mediums and scales creating total environments. Although I enjoy digital explorations, when I am outside of the office I spend most of my time drawing by hand in 2D. Additionally, when working in 3D on the computer I like to create jewelry, furniture, sculptures, and architecture.
How did you get started?
When I was learning about architecture in college, I read a lot! Everything I read continued to express the importance of drawing but it was not until after college that I began to consider this part of my own practice as a designer. After I completed my undergraduate degree, I assigned myself the task to draw one ‘building’ a day. I have been drawing for three years now and it feels like only the beginning…
In one sentence, briefly describe your artistic style:
My aesthetic is not applied, but rather emerges from the process.
