"Damn girl, FOCUS!"
We live in a world of chaos. Those that can find balance and thrive in their own pandemonium can conquer the clamor of distractions in our modern existence.
My passions and skill sets feed off of each other. My work in marketing and communications demands an understanding of the human psyche and cultural trends which inspires the art that I create. My art requires me to stay intimately connected to the core of my being. This constant practice of intuition fuels my ideas and effective decision making in a business setting. Music - especially live music - refreshes my soul and inspires everything.
As you may have noticed, I tend to employ dramatic language when I write for myself. Believe it or not, I am proficient at writing for corporate publications. To learn more about my professional experience in marketing and communications, check out my resume and services pages.
MORE ABOUT ME AS AN ARTIST…
In the 21st century, some pose the question- ‘Why make art at all anymore?’ What purpose, if any can it serve in the wake of 3D HD TVs and endless multimedia entertainment?
I make art when words will not suffice, when music wells up in my soul, and when images demand creation.I wrestle my inner demons with a paintbrush and push reality in Photoshop. I channel my extreme pain and overwhelming joy into my art. I also tap into the emotions of those around me or the mood of a melody for inspiration.
As an artist working in the 21st century, I make art because I am compelled to. It is how I deal with our disjointed, mediated, heartbreaking, surreal lives.
Studying both Communication and Art at University of Massachusetts Amherst, I developed a strong appreciation for the power art holds as a communication vehicle. Words limit us in our ability to communicate. The feeling and message conveyed by a piece of art is more powerfully sublime than words.
I enjoy creating work for clients because I enjoy tapping into their goals/visions/music to develop imagery which will effectively communicate what they want their fans/customers/house guests to feel.
Please feel free to reach out to me for freelance design projects or fine art commissions. If you see a piece that you like that I have not made available in prints - let me know!
