"1 Nation, Under Tyranny" was born out of a response to the current political environment. The word 'tyrannny' in itself is a dark word but I didn't want my approach to be dark–there can be light and color and beauty in the way we fight it. And fight is what we must do.

My latest works are influenced by my profession. As a designer, I’ve always had a love of typography. Type and color connect us all. They are a constant in everyone's lives and yet we each have different associations with them. Blue may make you think of the sky but for me, it could be a scarf my grandmother wore when I was a child. Certain letters or numbers have specific meanings to us–our initials or our lucky numbers, etc. My interest is in exposing what we see every day in a big, bold and new way.
