About the Artist
I am currently an undergraduate student at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas where I am majoring in Business Management and minoring in Mandarin Chinese and Creative Computation.
The day that I understood the difference between depicting a subject matter correctly versus truthfully, I became an artist. To draw something correctly is to fulfill a prescribed definition, but to render something truthfully is to communicate a deep understanding. So, rather than "learning to draw" what meets my eye, I immerse myself in the infinite process of "drawing to learn" about what meets my mind. This mindset lends itself to my signature style, "stream of consciousness" drawing, with which I create compositions without forethought. I loosen the wheels on my train of thought and let it ramble as I pour memories, associations, and wonderments into each piece until their interplay becomes a balanced composition. In translating these ideas into ink and paint, I play with conventional appearances, banter with artistic principles, and leave the subject wearing the perfume of my artistic personality. The progression of thought within each piece is as essential as the visual content. Though the visual presentation is what makes my pieces interesting, the thought that animates each piece is what makes it art. I leave the task of understanding this thought to the personal artistry of each viewer, because no matter how many descriptions I pile onto my visual musings, only you can interpret its meaning. The moment you enter consideration of a piece, your thought becomes a vital part of the art.
