The prints I have selected introduce traditional and non-traditional experimentation in contemporary printmaking produced in a two-dimensional and three-dimensional format. If granted this opportunity, the viewer will be introduced to selected images representing my ideology of what influence American culture from different iconic perspectives.
My primary objectives will also involves color theory, line quality, balance, perspective, scale and other formal issues surrounding my creative process that has tailored the development of my artwork. Furthermore, I've worked with established artists from diverse disciplines in order to expand my professional development as a printmaker. My strategy to develop challenging conceptual formats recognizing the importance and evolution that involves composing compositions which attempts to provoke and promote self awareness, social consciousness and spiritual enlightenment.
