Statement of Purpose
My career goals have always centered around the pursuit, understanding, and exploration of the artistic process. I have particularly gravitated towards pictorial art my whole life, since my mother was an artist and nurtured the growth of these aspects in me. I believe that I have unique skill and perspective in the field and within the journey of the mind. My wish is to further an independent career for the adventure to identify and define myself, as well as engage in the art field and within the art itself. I am looking to become a freelance artist and have also considered delving into all possibilities such as gallery exhibits, festivals, commissions, tattoo expositions, comic and graphic art, album designs, book covers, and general concept manifesting.
Anything artistic draws my curiosity in beyond financial means for the need to better understand my gifts and talents that I was initially endowed with throughout my life. I have been slowly exiting the shell of illustration which was my favorite hobby, called to improve greatly where color is involved to merge my fascination of contours and love of contrast together more. There is a consistent urging of my intent to find stronger understanding in my own stylistic expression, construction of theme, thought extraction, and overall strengths among other things. Seeing the work of my peers (such as Brian Thornhill and Cristabel Soto) has inspired me to continue undertaking this focus of my degree. Entry to the BFA program will give me the ability to keep up with the understanding of my personal visions in this manner and provide better clarity at the end of it all.
