The inspiration of my work varies from things I find in nature, my interests, my heritage and my feelings at that current moment in time.
What are we seeing in your work?
"Red Winged Black Bird" is a piece I created as a personal project and for display in the Student Corner Art Show. I was trying to become more familiar with traditional painting while painting something that really inspires me—beautiful black birds and the Mexican tradition of Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos).
"Tarot" is a piece I made for a traditional illustration class, taught by B.J. Chevalier. It was a project where we had to recreate three different tarot cards. I chose three cards that I felt represented who I am:
• Strength (La Fuerza) – Determination, Enduring life’s obstacles.
• The Moon- (La Luna) – Intuition, Dreams, Illuminates uncertain paths.
• Death (La Muerte) – Beginnings/Endings, Change, Transformation.
"Sio Pao" is a digital illustration piece I created for Portfolio I to showcase my character concept abilities.
