“Hella Oakland” was a period of self- investigation and solitude. The work process was a time of discovery and soul searching. I took a lot of risks and had many breakthroughs. I was transparent about my emotions and reactions to everyday objects in my path. Each piece is a narrative that relates to the next, and mimics moments that I had every day like in a film. The thoughts that I had when looking at these places on a constant meander was poetic for me. Graffiti and the street art in Oakland were motivations. I found myself attached to the street during this process. It uses photo-etching print process, viscosity and collage through the press.
