about the work

This body of work is a synopsis of my exploration of the idea of the "feminine". It was born from conversations I had with different people about when they feel the most feminine or how they define such a word. The work reflects my own navigation of understanding of what the Divine Feminine means as I took the time to grapple with and observe the superficial, the spiritual, and the sensual elements to it. The process of deliberation, reflection, and creation of these works was a personal exercise of tapping into my own Divine Feminine.

about the artist

I gravitate towards oil paint as my medium, although I do not confine myself to paint as my only form of creative expression. The subjects of my work tend to be born from photographs I take and translate onto the canvas. My work has always reflected on my interest in the female figure. Recently I have begun giving more focus to setting and exploring how the figure interacts in/with natural and intimate environments.

100 heads

about the work

These group of pieces represent my journey in experimenting with digital art. I have been exploring traditional mediums for about 7+ years, so this year in 2020 I decided to challenge myself to work digitally. Since finding out about the 100 heads challenge on social media, I am determined to use this challenge as a way to follow my growth.

about the work

This collection of pieces is apart of Karate Klass, an idea I have had for quite a while but just started to develop. These pieces have stemmed from my love of the 80's and 90's Hong Kong martial art films, 90’s anime, and fighting games. I wanted to create a group of young coming-of-age fighters that have very quirky and distinct looks. The characters are the main selling points of these works; I wanted to show that these characters are very different from each other and don’t necessarily like each other, but they work and train together due to their love of martial arts.

about the artist

Starting off watching anime and wishing I could be a cool artist at ten years old, I am now a freelance illustrator and story artist with a strong emphasis on character design. My work originates from my love of animation and visual storytelling. With that culmination, I create characters in dramatic situations and expressive worlds, along with some exciting colors and a movie-like atmosphere. Noticing that the cartoons I watched as a child never told any interesting black stories, or stories centered around strong women, I use my work to represent the power that women and black people have. All while making it fun and accessible to anyone.

about the artist
 

"Working as an artist occurs spontaneously for me, ideas for paintings can come from a snapshot of an image from some video. Or they can be as thought out as trying to convey an emotion or feeling. The most important aspect of creating for me has to be the process, making art has always been a form of catharsis."

about the work

Constructions and Compositions features both abstract and figurative works. As well as recent explorations into applying forms of writing into my paintings. The works which have specific titles are those that have gone through an exploration of combining writing and expressionist painting practices. Pieces I have created by way of combining painting and sculpture are listed as constructions.

about the work

My paintings are of people I care about and love. The paintings of my friends are often scenes from memories I hold of them. Sometimes I'll change aspects about them to show how I picture them in my head over time, rather than just focusing on one memory. Each painting is like a little mood-board of them in it. I love bold lines and striking colors, I pull a lot of inspiration from fauvism and post impressionist paintings / painters (xoxo Matisse).
