My artwork stemmed from writing songs. I found graphic design was a way to express my emotions and communicate my writing along with imagery. It’s a strange concept: when you write a song you are generally in your most vulnerable state and then to share it with the world is quite daunting. This is where I found the passion to continue that expression but through a different art form.
