Though illustration is not my main passion or priority in life, it has allowed me to translate obscurities in my mind into physical artifacts that i can share with other people, concepts that i would otherwise be unable to clarify with words. The themes that hover around my work include the apathy of younger generations to environmental and social degradation, escapism, the juxtaposition of individualism and collective conscience, the intricacies of human relationships, and sometimes purely botanical illustration. None of my pieces though, thus far, relate to a specific current event, person, place or thing-they are rather abstractions by definition. I work with mostly pen and ink, mainly on illustration and mat board.

Open mic is a space for you to share yourself in anyway that feels right to you. This is an open space where whatever happens is what we create, individually and collectively. This is an opportunity to challenge ourselves and each other, to express rawness and/or humor and/or grief and/or celebration...and so much more.
