BIO

Philadelphia based illustrator and designer looking to push the boundaries of perception by exploring real world elements then layering and intertwining them into a surreal space. The current body of work, The Void, is a conceptual exploration of physical and mental spaces and the interaction between the two. The goal of the current work is to express a variety of emotions and experiences through a large variety of images, objects, people, etc. in the hopes of creating a body of work that is expressive of the emotions felt when creating it but also relatable in a way that the viewer can tie their own experiences and perceptions to each piece. 

As of June 2021, Mortem Clothing Co. has been a new project that explores taking hand drawn illustration and applying it to a wearable medium. Mortem is built to be community oriented, inclusive, empowering, and in your face. This project has also been a vehicle to collaborate with different and inspiring artists to explore how the message of the brand can be displayed through different imagery.
