I try to appreciate the beauty in all things, be it nature, photography, words, or experiences. Specifically, I find joy in learning others’ stories. Learning individual experiences plants roots of empathy and can create a sense of emotional authenticity, which I feel is a necessity to being a designer/artist.

Immaculate Cleansing

A study in semiotics, this screen print plays off of the ideas of religious and cultural iconography. Combining the spiritual imagery of Our Lady of Guadalupe with a well-known image of detergent, this piece juxtaposes two different ideas of what it means to be cleansed.
