Amateur Escapist

In 2015, I created a site called Amateur Escapist that I meant to function as a quarterly collaborative art zine based on my experiences with similar projects online in the early 2000’s. The first release First Words included nine artists (including myself) and I was blown away by the work submitted. For a variety of reasons, AE didn’t go beyond that first “issue” but I still have hopes of reviving it one of these days.

Assembled Dots and Feelings

A realization that I always move towards assemblage and the suggestion of a branching network of stories in simple elements. I am also recently taken with dots.
