My works rest in a comfortable tension between these digital and traditional aesthetics. The theme of each piece is shaped by vibrant visuals, combining digital illustration and hand-drawn elements with subtle opacities and overlapping layers to alter the mood of a piece. I feel liberation using new technology. It allows me to explore color, texture, shape, and form in ways previously unavailable to me. I strive to constrain this newfound freedom in the time-tested parameters of color, texture, composition, mood, finding a resonant middle ground between two clashing ideologies.
