Creating something from nothing, that’s what we as artists do. Of course, we’re often inspired by what we see around us and from something that’s within. The manifestation of a tangible piece from some abstract thought is a fascinating process. For me, this is what makes drawing so alluring. I’m a Michigan-native and a recent University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill graduate. I do not have any formal art training, but art is something I’ve explored, independently, all 23 years of my life. I like to keep things simple in my prints by working with little color and exploring the intersection of different types and weights of lines. My art journey has only just begun and I have much more to learn for sure, but I like where I’ve come thus far. Hopefully, the images I’ve produced will put a smile on your face.
