i go by Dēspö

My current mediums are drawing, writing, photography and editorial collage; previous to these I designed my own clothes- this is where Dēspö was created; next will be film, and eventually music. I set goals based on production so that I’m able to move between mediums without much overlap, and I’ve found that this process limits distraction and allows me to focus on and achieve what I deem to be success within whichever medium(s) I am currently working.


The joy of creation is an end, in and of itself, and this is my primary goal as an artist: to create, and to keep creating, until I die.


My philosophy and guiding principle is to Pursue Beauty. I also use three pillars to dictate how I work:

1. I make a relative few pieces

2. I spend a lot of time on them

3. Sales are secondary
