I sketch, photograph, and paint to understand my environment, especially in my travels. I do it to meditate, and absorb the world I’m in. I believe through sketching we subconsciously engage in problem solving; it is an act that is both logical and creative. The mark making is generative as well as archival, and almost always attracts onlookers of all ages; it starts conversations and reminds people of the beauty they forget to see in their own cities and villages.
Graphic design has been a useful tool for me to visually entice and communicate ideas and projects administered by active bodies at my school. Pamphlets, posters, magazines, and even course catalogues have been an important means of attracting sponsorship for projects with a social mission and approval from administrative bodies.
