Artist Statement

Being an artist is in my blood. My grandfather was a painter, and my father, an artist with metals as a welder. As soon as I could hold a crayon, every piece of paper would be part of my collection of baby masterpieces. Luckily for my parents, the walls didn’t interest me. It wasn’t until 1998 that I got introduced to the idea that I could use the computer and internet as another medium for my creativity.

Equipped with MS Paint and the World Wide Web, I began exploring the possibilities. I taught myself how to read html and began building WebPages for my friends. My uncle found out what I was doing and introduced me to Adobe Photoshop 7. From that I realized I preferred designing layouts rather than actually making the website. So in school I began taking graphic design classes, starting with software such as Adobe PageMaker, Illustrator, and Photoshop. And in college I was fully immersed in Quark Xpress, InDesign and the rest of the Adobe Creative Suite.

Graphic Designers aren’t considered to be artists, they take other peoples art, (photos, stories, illustrations) and put it together to make a visual representation, or message. I, however, consider myself an artist. Along with designing, I also like to create my own artwork. Art has always been a big part of my life. My favorite artist is Andy Warhol, along with Roy Lichtenstein and other American Pop Artists. Pop art and art nouveau are two of my favorite movements.
