Lust, envy, respect unite to follow the bridge of a nose, the curve of a spine and to freeze the echoes of a dream.  This artist has a big dream and believes – Art branches out to understand, interpret. More words from this artist…unfit, awkward, provocative, sensitive, satire, and irony. Photography, collage, and film are the methods of expression that work for this artist.  Already a Co-founder of fashion magazine, and co-designing a fashion line is also in the mix. We will follow your path as you study at UNT in photography and fashion design and anticipate the Aviles fashion company.
