Can you tell us some information about your art? How would you describe it? I am a multimedia artist and psychonaut who is intrigued by sacred geometry. So, when I'm not drawing or painting shapes, I'm making them with my body while hula hooping. All of my art is a representation of my flow state of mind.
Where do you find your inspiration? I often find my inspiration through meditation or just simply life itself. My everyday mind is a curious place, and the universe's secrets are the most inspiring. I'm inspired by emotions, experiences and soul.
What are your future goals for your art? Honestly, just to keep it as a part of my life, as long as I can. I think it's important to express yourself and have a creative outlet, whatever that may be. Being creative keeps my soul young and my mind balanced. The world we live in isn't for the faint of heart and there are many stressors, for that art is my escape. The universe is also uncertain, so as for the future goes, I can only hope that I get the opportunity to keep art in my life for as long as I live. Growing my following so I can reach more people with my art who can also enjoy it, inspiring others, or turning this into a side hustle of doing what I love and profiting from it would be cool, but it's not a goal. May my creative journey take me where it takes me, just may it never get lost along the way!
What are you most excited about for DEVIATE? Why should people come to DEVIATE? The collective. This is both my first year participating and attending DEVIATE. But from what I have seen, DEVIATE has a different collective energy from any other event like it that I have seen. I am most excited to share a space with so many other talented and creative individuals.
Why should people come to check you out at DEVIATE? Because I feel like I will be adding a special kind of energy to DEVIATE, that radiates love and light.
What do you want us to know about your art, your style? Somebody once said, "An artists' art is just a view inside their mind." My art is just that, a visual expression of my soul.
What is your background? How did you get into art, did you go to school for it, etc. Give us a little history! I grew up on the southside of Chicago, and moved to the Rockford area when I was freshly 21. For as long as I can remember, art has always been my biggest passion. Crafting as a child, art class, doing a career presentation in the 6th grade on becoming a tattoo artist instead of a doctor, or a vet, you name it, art was there. But if I am being honest, up until 2019 I stopped being the creative kid, got caught up in life...figuring out who I am and what-not. Then something in me changed right before Covid 2020 and I started to create again. I entered the Fall Art Scene in downtown Rockford and had 6 new pieces of art hung up at the local Metaphysical shop Luna Daturas. I sold my first art piece.
Then Covid happened. There I was stuck in the house and faced with figuring out who I really am, what makes me happy, what am I still holding onto that I need to let go of, what is keeping me from living my most full life? The answer is myself, not being true to that creative kid I have always been. So, through a lot of soul searching and boredom, I painted one of my largest paintings and one of my most creative paintings during covid and found my "style." I began to paint a lot of shapes and later came to associate my artwork with sacred geometry because all my art pieces incorporate it.
As for hula hooping, my flow art, I also picked that hobby up during covid and spent my free time practicing. It quickly became one of my most favorite outlets and a new form of being creative. Hooping is a form of meditation for me. However, I also enjoy going to festivals and raves. There's a certain energy about those kinds of places that you just can't find anywhere else, and it inspires me to be more creative. I often find my flow state is the best in a creative environment like that and it has built up my confidence to perform and share the beauty that is Flow Arts.
