Call for Artists Accepted Artists
San Jose, California USA
Since I was very young, I used my imagination and creativity to escape the pressures and toils of everyday life. Collecting toys, comic books and trading cards were like armor in my defense against situations I could not control. This of course never solved my problems, but creative practices such as drawing, helped me organize and compartmentalize my thoughts and ideas.
Many of my influences included cartoons, storybooks, fables and graphic novels. In these stories animals played integral parts in conveying the message. It was no surprise that I found drawing animals most appealing and satisfying. The body of work I have created is the result of me accessing those same modes of organization and collection that I acquired when I was younger.
I actively paint with bright synthetic colors and then draw and paint a natural figure on top to overcome challenges such as textures and color relationships. I observe the nature of the paint and how it reacts to my movements. My connection to the animal figure keeps me focused amidst the various planes of colors and textures that I create.
