Over the last 16 years, starting as a street artist in Austin, I have grown to become an internationally commissioned muralist. In studio work, I aim to conjure the same energy of spontaneity present in the street, complete with textures, layers and complex modes of communication, adapting designs for textiles, mosaic, neon lighting and more. In recent years I am interested in creating landmark installations that transform a space, through painted murals, glass, lighting, textiles, mosaic art or any combination of these. I collaborate with designers and architects to maximize impact in public art pieces, ensuring the work fits perfectly, eventually becoming indispensable and timeless. Much of my artistic career to this point has evolved naturally out of travel, collaborations with foreign artists and diverse communities, while also propelled by my own curiosity about the possibility inherent in new and repurposed materials alongside innovative processes and ancient techniques.
