Abstract/Artist Statement

As an artist I want to create works of art that inspires people to
create new things. My goal is to have my viewers to think outside the
box and wonder about the world around them. I want to inspire people
like great artists have inspired me. These great artists have created
worlds like the ones in films and books. As a child, I loved
pretending to be a part of those worlds. When I watched the Star Wars
movies for the first time, I could not help but imagine myself in
them. I loved, and still love, the whole idea of space traveling to
unique planets and Jedi knights fighting for peace in a far-away
galaxy. When I started playing video games as a teenager many new
worlds were revealed. My cousins introduced me to my favorite game
called Shadow of the Colossus. This game made me want to do concept
art. The colossi that I love the most is Quadratus because of the
beauty of the design of it. It makes me think of a dog made of the
earth. The game design of Shadow of Colossus is wonderful. The
graphics of the game on the PlayStation 2 were above its time. This
video game inspired me to create new characters, creatures, and
environments. As time went on, I expanded this vision beyond video
games into visual communication and decided to become a graphic
designer as they instill change in people through their work. I want
to work for colleges and universities because I want to help create
materials that promote and support education. So this is why I want to
be a graphic designer, to inspire others.
