I have always been what I consider a creative and have been involved in art of some kind since I was a kid. I spent countless hours drawing and painting in my youth and still continue to create fine art today. During my teens and 20s I was immersed in the graffiti culture, and that love of letters and characters ultimately led me to an interest in graphic design in which I earned my college degree. Having been in the design industry for about 20 years now, my love of letters and characters remains, and my love of visual storytelling has grown and evolved with new technologies and skillsets.
Beyond my love for art, design, and photography, I am also very passionate about music and nature. As a native to Colorado I have been lucky enough to see most of this beautiful state, and I am always in awe of the treasures that hide in the mountains not so far from my front door. Escaping to the mountains to camp, hike, snowboard, or bike through the beautiful landscapes is how I enjoy spending my time away from my trusty computer.
For my piece I intend to showcase my love of owls and their otherworldly (alien) appearance to welcome visitors in to the universe of the Fraser Mountain Valley landscape with a starry night sky that can only be appreciated far away from the city lights.
