the poet

The milestones of graduation, marriage, birth and death were all approached with a sense of lyricism that grew and adapted with the life of a person who identifies with the poet personality. Common threads that move throughout each piece in this series contain handmade paper of two harmonious colors, stenciled poetry, and the scale of important words or ideas. Poet's relate to not only the poetry included in each piece, but also the beauty of the handmade paper iteslf. The simplistic nature of the layouts coincides with the ideas of a poet by applying their sharp insight and their ability to see the essence of beauty in the most common of events.

Poet Graduation

A combination of teenage angst and a romantic view of what beauty is in a union between the free flowing look of handwritten poetry and the bold finality of the word "commence." The duality of the colored handmade paper represents both the idea of leaving behind innocence as well as the uncertainty of the actual desire to abandon childhood. With the random placement of color there is an illusion of adulthood breaking through the bonds of immaturity.
