My path as an artist really began when I took on the challenge to design and build my own furniture. It was the first time I had worked hands-on with wood. I created a couple wood wave pieces next and soon realized I had created something very unique. The little spark of joy I felt from surrounding myself with my own creation caught on like a wildfire. I haven’t looked back since.
I try to keep things simple in all my works, which is difficult to do at times. I look at a lot of surf and ocean related imagery for inspiration, picking apart the different angles and sections from different photos. Once I think I have something worthwhile, I’ll draw it up. I create multiple versions of each concept, mixing and matching layout variations and color palettes until I come up with what I feel is worth bringing to life.
