Artist’s Statement
One day in third grade, I watched my friend draw a ninja turtle during lunch hour. I wanted to know what that experience was like. I went home and started drawing. I’ve never stopped making art since.

Currently, I’m fascinated with developing my paintings and watercolors like a movie company. I get an idea. If the idea keeps telling me to make it into a production, then I know it’s an idea worth producing. Like a director, I focus on developing the setting, the characters, the decor, the light source, and the mood of the story. I draw directly on the canvas with a fine tip charcoal pencil, editing my lines as I draw out the scene. Like a script, my drawing is what guides me while I paint. I use a strong light source to develop my forms and shadows. The showcase characteristics of the “Artist as Director Paintings,” are their vibrant colors and conceptually whimsical forms. I exaggerate my drawings and color pallet to make the experience more dramatic and entertaining. When completed, I have produced a full production within the final piece of art.

For Made to Order
