Typography

Words create the stories we tell, what we believe and even change the patterns of our brains. I love words and I especially love typography. My love for typography began in the mid 90s when I realized I could in fact manipulate the way I wrote. I haven't stopped since then.

Midori Hirose's work was showcased at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara and the museum needed her name and title of work on the wall. I was fortunate to be able to do this. This is Midori's personal writing but I hand painted it on the wall.
