I’m an artist based in the beautiful mountains of Telluride, Colorado. I consider my art to be an extension of who I am; each artwork is a self-portrait. The deeper I dive into the depths of my own creative process, the more I discover about myself - my heart, my soul, my vibration, my purpose- and the more I create, the closer I get to my truth. It’s my mission as an artist to share my creative journey and gifts with earthlings and beyond.
In 2017, I graduated from Wake Forest University as a Presidential Scholar for Visual Arts with a concentration in oil painting. I currently am a resident artist at Voodoo Studios in Telluride. In March 2020, I had my first solo exhibition at Gallery 81435 in Telluride which showcased a new series of Augmented Reality enabled oil paintings.
I am a leading pioneer in the exploration of XR art (extended reality art) & community-based VR collaboration. My work blends several disciplines into one - painting, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, installation, and video - to form an altogether “Unknown Zone” of Art. I am establishing new frontiers at the intersection where art and technology meet in the context of its impact on consciousness. I create mind-bending experiences purposed to harness spiritual energy; transporting the viewer to different inter-spatial dimensions.
When starting a work of art, I have no vision of what the end result should look like. Letting my intuition be the guide, I begin with disorderly, random acts, embracing mistakes and the unknown. Each of my original paintings evolves into having a soulful counterpart within a virtual plane of existence, taking on a new Virtual Reality identity. I seek to dissect, replicate, and layer parts of my oil paintings to create new material as a basis for future 3D digital works.
I am inspired by sacred geometry, every color of the rainbow, and the mysterious inner workings of my mind. My practice shifts between chaos and order, organic and geometric shapes, and irregularity and symmetry.
My process involves translating my oil paintings into Virtual Reality and then back into reality. Virtual Reality enables me to expand the layers of my oil paintings in 3D digital space, which in turn, enables one to fully immerse themselves inside the artwork.
Virtual Reality collaboration is a HUGE passion of mine. I’ve collaborated with numerous festivals, locally and internationally, including Telluride Fire Festival, Original Thinkers, and Ranetas Festival in Alcañiz, Spain. I've also collaborated with scientists, nonprofits, and musicians in VR.
