A Summer of Travel

I was fortunate enough over he past few months to have been able to take some time to myself to really enjoy and experience life to the fullest. I traveled down south to New Orleans where I experienced art, culture, and creole cooking. I made it down to Florida to enjoy some water sports and the beach and then Asheville, North Carolina to camp out in the mountains and explore some microbreweries.

The Process

I almost love my process photos more then the actual final finished pieces. Something about the process is so amazing to me. The raw image of the materials all over the place, showcasing the artist at work. I get lost in my own world when I start working with materials like pen and ink, watercolor, colored pencils, etc. My goal now is just to keep on experimenting with new materials and find my niche. 

SCAD Hong Kong Experience

This is my first ever post thus far, now being in Hong Kong. A select group of artists ranging from visual effects, to motion media, to photography, to illustration, graphic design and advertising, were all chosen selectively, to participate in a once in a lifetime experience. This experience consisted of a paid for trip to Hong Kong. When I found out the news that I had actually been chosen for the trip I was beyond thrilled. I do not travel much, and having the opportunity to do so with my fellow peers to exhibit my work was more than amazing. I feel blessed and honored to be apart of something so great. I feel so proud to be apart of such an amazing community. SCAD has opened many doors for me. When I came here I knew it was my place and I was right at home. Now this trip, to end it all, was just the icing on the cake. My eyes have been opened to a whole new culture. It is shocking and somewhat scary but extremely interesting. Each day I explore more and more and my goal is to just keep roaming. I am somewhat of a wanderlust and have the urge to cover as many streets as possible because I am so curious to see what else is out there. I hope that this experience most of all can be an inspiration for my work.
