Artist | Creative Professional
I have been working as a creative professional for 20 years. I strive to narrow the gap between people and technology by creating elegant and accessible products with a focus on user-experience. I enjoy making the complex appear simple and creating emotional connections with the people who use the products I create.
"Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that's easy. What's hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity."
~ Charles Mingus
My artwork is inspired by life and a love for simple beauty. I paint primarily with acrylics, but also love using non-waterproof India ink, watercolor, and even sketching on my phone.
It can be a wonderful feeling to evoke a response in others with what I create, but it's ultimately the creative process that engages me most.
What is felt and learned during the creative process seems to be built upon a much greater process of living. There's no experience like allowing myself to essentially be a child again...to be curious, removing fear and doubt, and surrendering myself to just creating. In the end, there is never failure, but hopefully a new truth that I've given birth to that has never existed.
"The creative process is a process of surrender, not control."
~ Julia Cameron
