Artist Statement

Art is not limited to paint on a canvas or a sculpture in a museum. Art is expression which comes in many forms. I want to celebrate art in the form of a fashion magazine. Art is an experience and I want the viewer to have the experience of sitting down comfortably, enjoying a nice read, and relaxing while listening to music.

I have always been interested in fashion and am particularly intrigued by the glamorous lifestyle that European fashion assumes. In the fall of 2014, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Salamanca, Spain. While in Spain, I wanted to learn more about the fashion scene; I had many conversations about Spanish fashion and held photo shoots of my European friends with the end goal of creating this fashion magazine. I never told them what to wear or what to say for the purpose of authenticity. This magazine is more than a glimpse into the fashion world of Spain; it is a commemoration of the experiences that I had while living abroad. The faces in the magazine are the faces of the close friends I made, the articles include blurbs about specific places in Salamanca that I frequently visited, the music are songs regularly played in the cafes, bars, and clubs.

I want this to be an all-encompassing experience for you as much as it can be. Let the art be the experience of you embracing a facet of Spanish culture in this setting.

¡Relajaos y que lo disfrutéis! Relax and enjoy!
