What is Art to you?

Art is my way of keeping my sanity because theirs no rules. That’s what’s dope about knowing the difference between design and art. I can do whatever I please with art, with design I’m solving visual problems.

Would you consider yourself an artist or a designer?

I’d consider myself both. I can be both just fine. I’m an artist when I have a vision in my mind that just urgently needs to be put on paper or a canvas. I’m a designer when I’m putting together a way for my clients customers to understand and communicate with them well.


So explain your creative process from the moment an idea pops into your head to it becoming reality?

I usually get inspired by my surroundings & I always carry a sketch book. I’m super detailed with my notes in my sketches so I never lose memory of the fire details that sparked my interest. When you have a vision you just have it, i guard it and pursue it.

Who and or what inspires you? 

I can be inspired by anything so I wouldn’t really like to put a label on it.

So why the rose? Like with the ice cream cone and the Hennessy  bottle, where did that concept arrive from?

Honestly, I have a deep connection with roses. My grandmothers name is Rosa & she will forever have my heart. The New York Rose Water piece was inspired by a funny conversation I had with my sister. The Rose Cone was inspired by a hot summer day.


So you’re pieces more than just being aesthetically appealing, they all carry some type of story behind them? 

Majority of them do, a handful don’t.

Is there anything you’ve learned about yourself thru art that you don’t think you would have learned other wise?

I’ve learned that I’m stronger that I thought I was. I used art as a way to heal myself and communicate with the world in a moment when I felt so misunderstood.


With that said, Where do you see your art taking you in the future? 

I’ll willing to go wherever it takes me, hopefully great places. But I know it’s something I know for a fact I’ll spend my lifetime doing.
