aerosol and stencils on cedar board
I’ve been doing stencil art for perhaps a year and a half. I recently purchased a home of my own and realized that I needed to fill its walls with nice artwork. After a meditation retreat left me with a burst of creative energy, I came across the medium of stencil art and knew that it would be the perfect fit for me to demonstrate ideas that I have in my head, as my illustrative ability is quite poor. However, working for an advertising agency I am surrounded by talented graphic designers and knowledge of programs such as Quark and Photoshop that will allow me to manipulate fonts and images to piece together layouts that I can then execute with stencils and aerosol. I fell in love with the medium and dedicated myself to pushing the boundaries of its creativity.
