Showcase & Discover Creative Work

I am an interdisciplinary artist, illustrator and designer who loves working in the spaces between disciplines, ideas, movements, technologies, etc. To an extent that makes me a bridge builder, but I’ve found that often the intersections or spaces between things are just as interesting if not more so than the bridges built over them. I believe that design connects ideas and people and that great design and art have the power to change the world.
