My work explores several color studies, the spatial and structural relationships between architectural and typographical forms and contrasting geometric and biomorphic shapes. I utilize various media, mainly collage, paint, and digital media, in a methodical approach to create abstract compositions.
As a child, I was diagnosed with Attention Hyperactive Deficit Disorder, more commonly referred to as ADHD, which has negatively impacted my personal relationships and verbal communication skills. I often find myself tripping over my words and sometimes I take longer to process what people are directly saying to me because the syllables sound jumbled, or my brain unintentionally tunes them out. When utilizing digital and typographical media, I find that approaching typography in unconventional, abstract ways helps to best visualize what I experience.
My oil paintings are specifically process based and do not always feature typographical elements. I like to assemble cut paper and collage pieces together as part of my preliminary work. This allows me to explore how colors interact and find new design solutions that I haven’t uncovered in previous work. I transfer my cut paper compositions to a larger surface, which allows me to make additional and spontaneous modifications as I deem necessary.
My work is not intended to accurately portray what ADHD is or advocate for awareness, but I want to emphasize the role ADHD plays in my creative development. My artmaking process allows me to hyper focus and completely immerse myself in the clutter while responding to various colors, shapes, and patterns that I find stimulating and create the structure and order that ADHD prevents me from achieving in other areas of my life.
