Handle with Care

Face to Face
interactive installation: Mix media on paper, 2019.

My practice consists of mark-making and experience design. I would define myself as a visual storyteller, with a focus on being playful and tactile. I think it's important to create work with a positive narrative. I use drawing as a way of exploring humanity and issues within society. My project, Face to Face, is an interactive installation where the viewer and artist collaborate. Creating an artwork about humanity and connection through drawing. I want the viewer to feel empowered and present. I see the world as a mix of connections and fleeting moments. This independent project is an artwork looking at you, of you and about you.
