My artistic practice, while firmly within the realm of graphic design and illustration, branches into the world of Printmedia and book design fueling my desire to blur the lines between a designer and fine artist. My passion for narrative and visual storytelling begin digitally and are rejuvenated through the use of materials and enlivened by my choice of paper as a medium.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

 

This book presents my personal struggle with finding a constant answer to the question "Where are you from?"; a result of moving around and settling in new places every few years. This idea is presented as a dialogue between people as they familiarize themselves with each other. The dialogue imitates a generic initial conversation between people but the use of repetitive typography and embossed metal type accentuate my personal dilemma when answering this question.
