MFA Illustration of Savannah College of Art and Design. For me, illustrating is a way of understanding and connecting to my own reality. I recognize illustration as a universal language, where the meaning is not always on the surface, but the message is always there. The majority of my work is an exploration of extremes, testing how much I can push an image in terms of proportion, scale, unusual combinations, and sometimes nonsensical scenarios in order to deliver a message. I try to evoke dreams, magic, nostalgia, and a sense of strange familiarity, similar to the sense of returning to your childhood home, or a smell that transports you back in time.
