BFA - graphic design

For as long as I can remember I have always been drawn to bright colors incorporated with an intricate design pattern, for the sheer fact that both of these elements have always managed to make me happy in one way or another. This statement remains true in all aspects of my life, no matter where I am or what I am doing; my eyes always pick out the brightest, most active item in that space. Ever since I decided to pursue art as my career, I have been creating works with a plethora of vibrant colors in hopes that my art will be the first fixation for a pair of eyes to see.

Throughout my career it has become relatively easy for my friends, fellow peers, and professors to single out my works from the others simply due to my use of an abundance of color. When designing a new work of art, not just digitally but with ever medium I chose to work with, one of my first thoughts in planning the designated design is “what color scheme would work best for this piece to leave my viewers not only visually pleased but also with the desire to see more”. Without the use of color, not only in my works but also in the works of every artist, I believe, our viewers would be left displeased and unsatisfied.
