Artist Statement

When people look at the work that I’ve done at Murray State so far, I want them to notice my passion for the field. In the works that I have done so far, a few of my favorite things to instill are alignment, typography and color. In graphic design, these elements are important attributes to create a successful piece.

I typically try to imitate what attracts me to another person’s work. My art and design use a lot of contour lines, symmetrical balance, shape, and negative and positive space. Usually my mental process of starts with getting ideas in my head and I write them down. If I don’t get an idea right away it usually takes some time for me to finally come up with a project to do. If I do have an idea though, it usually starts as one thing and as I start to work on it, it begins morphing into many different ideas and my entire project becomes a much bigger concept. I have instilled some of these elements and principles of design, specifically into a logo project and travel ad layout project.

The things that influence my work vary from my family to music to desserts to traveling. They are the things that excite me the most and I always have endless ideas of items to make when it comes to them. I also love making logos and the concept of brand naming. I am very interested in working on my hand lettering. This is a very big reason why I love Louise Fili and Marla Moore’s work so much. Fili does both branding and hand lettering and I recently have started to look at her work more often. Moore does everything that I aspire to do as well. Her aesthetic and her hand lettering inspire me to really give it my all. Overall, what I think I do the best in are the projects that interest me and go along with what I want to be successful at in life.
