Why did you pick this picture?
This is one of my newer works. I am doing a collection of skulls at the moment that incorporates elements from my various styles of work. My signature pieces definitely focus on color, balance, texture, and dimensionality and this artwork captures each of those elements. The juxtapositions of skulls, which represent death, and the colorful elements along with the butterflies, which represent happiness, energy, and movement is a theme that I’m looking to play with more in the future.
Where did the idea for this art come from?
I saw a beautiful geometric face within a lightbox at the Armory Show this past March as since then, I’ve been wanting to do a piece inspired by that artwork. This is my spin on it.
What does this art mean to you?
This art represents my desire to keep developing and evolving in my aesthetic and technique. As I’ve only been creating art for a short period of time, I hope to always be progressing while still maintaining my signature look.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I am a self-taught artist born and raised in NYC. I only recently started pursuing art as a career and am so grateful to have found something that is both creative and intellectually stimulating at the same time. A big part of working in the art world is socializing and networking, and it allows for my outgoing personality to shine – I love working with clients and meeting new people every day. As far as longterm goals, I’d like to expand my reach by exploring product design specifically in the home accessories and decor arena.
What more can you tell us about your art?
Keep an eye out for what I have in store for the future. I have some upcoming collaborations that I am extremely excited about.
