Artist Statement

In this world there are many ways to communicate but my way to communicate with others is through art. All my works of art hold a meaning and a purpose that contain a piece of me that allows my creative flow to be exposed. Not only am I expressing the pain, laughter, sorrow and emotions my soul and explaining the unexplainable.

I am a versatile designer who doesn’t have a personal style; I can achieve any kind of a style, from neoclassical to contemporary. Some of my favorite things of are planning spaces, learning about new materials and be able to apply them in to my design in the unexpected way. Inspiration often comes from the reason behind the project, for example: I’m currently working designing a space for a hospital residents located in Michigan, which is based in the Industry History of Michigan, I am creating my theme through the representation of different materials such as: woods, metals, glass and concrete.

I’m always looking to learn new things and I’m open to critics and suggestions I believe that is a good way to grow as an artist. I always take light into consideration, in each of my design I always try to bring in natural light to make the space bigger and brighter. Color can play a huge role during my design, that’s why I always stay with a neutral-earthy color pallet. I also select bold color as accents. My goals for the future are to get good reviews of my work by the end of the semester and get hired by an architectural firm. Read Less
