The artist's statement: I make art because it gives me a creative outlet to focus my energy and attention to express my thoughts as clearly as possible due to my attention deficit disorder. When I am working on a piece of art I become consumed in my work and nothing can distract me from it, I like to call it being in the "zone." My art expresses how even though someone with such a scattered mind like mine can create something with such focus. My disorder motivates me to create. It pushes me to target something specific and make a piece of art from that. The ability to voice my thoughts and ideas without having to say anything is key to me. Much of my designs take on an illustrative feeling, and are still able to convey what it was meant to show the viewer. The works tend to also read as a little more fun, as if play-like, incorporating my fun personality into the piece. My goal is to expand my creativity through my experiences - whether they are academic or life experiences - and to acquire a position with a graphic design firm. Through those experiences I hope to achieve greater outlets of creativity; discovering new ways to approach a project and utilize a wider range of materials in the creation process.
