In my screen printed illustrations, I depict the places I frequent most, illustrating the emotion and memories each place evokes. By capturing moments with small, sometimes hidden detail, I show a personal relationship I have with the spaces. It is a body of work in progress, as there are many more places I find magical enough to put ink to paper.
I am a screen printer and illustrator from Buffalo, NY. I began screen printing in 2014 and fell in love with the process- turning any idea into a tangible piece of art. I started printing t-shirts in several different shops, producing thousands of orders from local businesses to epic clients. A couple of years after getting into screen printing, I started and continue to teach children and adults how to print on paper and t-shirts at The Western New York Book Arts Center (WNYBAC), a local educational non-profit in downtown Buffalo. I’m a member of the Center and also use their Studio to do my printing and custom work. I create all my designs and drawings from my home studio and bring in my materials to print. I plan to continue to expand this collection of work, one day setting up a studio of my own.
During the winter months when we are forced to close the garage door of our open air shop, we make lemonade out of lemons by installing a gallery wall! In the spirit of inspiring people and supporting local artists, we love to feature the work of artists in our community both in the shop and on our digital platforms.
If you're a local artist and you would like to be featured by MUSEjar send us a message!
