Statement

My work has never been about one thing. I’ve struggled for an artistic identity, something that ties it all together for the viewer. They say it’s good to be able to wear many hats. So with this body of work I’m chasing a desire to be seen. A clothing line for individuals with similar curiosities and aesthetics as I. A vague spiritual journey containing artifacts from a unfamiliar land and a unspecified time. I find myself entranced by the history and legends of ancient civilizations. The architecture and designs of lost cultures ignite my imagination and deep desire to see the magic in the mundane. I love stories of quests and difficult journeys. Something grand and mystical of great importance. These interests can add light to what can be a difficult time, to instill a sense of purpose when life can seem so directionless.
