Anachronism

2017 - Present

This body of work explores the sense of nostalgia evoked from black and white photography, often through first person view in hopes of forming pseudo-personal connections through perspective.

Water Is Life

2017 - Present

These mandalas are made by handwriting words with a brush in Adobe Illustrator, making copies of them and angling them so that they overlap in a way that creates a mandala. Each mandala is unique to a handwritten idea. No two mandalas turn out alike, even when writing the same word. The longer the word, the more complex the mandala.

The most recent incarnation of these mandalas is inspired by Christi Belcourt and Isaac Murdoch of the Onaman Collective's "Water Is Life" campaign, where they have made free downloadable works of art for water protectors. This series was made by writing "WaterIsLife" in handwriting, and then creating copies at different angles for each mandala.

Digital Mandalas

These mandalas are made by handwriting words digitally, making copies of them and angling them so that they overlap in a way that creates a mandala. Each mandala is unique to a handwritten idea, engrained with a hidden and often sacred message. No two mandalas turn out alike, even when writing the same word. The longer the word, the more complex the mandala.
