“ Evolution requires the voices of those who cause waves. Fearing to create ripples with your perspectives, not only squelches your ideas, but in doing so, deprives the world of endless possibilities. – Salazar

I am inquisitive by nature and this point should become apparent when viewing much of my work. I remain committed to experimenting across the various mediums and enjoy the freedom that is afforded by the different materials and the individual aesthetic that they provide. As for content, my versatility is something that I hold in high value. At times, expressing the lighter moments and citing human comedy strikes my interest, but I find that what drives my work home is subject matter that invokes deeper thought and spurns dialogue amongst it’s viewers.
I am a social creature and in that right, an individual with strong convictions. These firm beliefs act as a driving force for raising awareness to what I find to be orchestrated injustices. I aim to educate others with whatever means are at my disposal and visual expression happens to be one that I feel particularly confident in executing. My imagery at first glance often plays on emotional cues, generating an initial desired response of shock and dismay. However, lying just beneath the surface there are messages that to me hold a special social relevance, one’s just dying to be heard. Whether it be clay, pencil, paint, photography, or other digital media, I strive to produce work that will leave people scratching their heads and inevitably searching themselves for answers. Reactions thus far show promise in attaining those goals and inspire a continuing effort in pursuit of my visual expressions.
