About Me

For as long as I can remember, I had a deep interest and connection with art. My parents were extremely supportive and I owe it to them for helping nurture me into the person that I am today. I attended art school (Tyler School of Art) for 2 and a half  years and ultimately decided to withdraw in the pursuit of entrepreneurship. 

From the age of thirteen, I started selling my artwork at anime/gaming conventions. Since then, I have attended and exhibited at conventions across the United States and Canada. I built up an online store and also take freelance projects on the side.

Artist Statement

In my artwork I like the exploration of experimentation and often use a variety of materials and subjects but my heart truly resides with the depiction and understanding of the human form. The process I work with has a core that remains true with each piece but I am always looking for ways of improvement. Concept prevails strongly over intent in my eyes, so while a piece may lose its intent in the development from beginning to end as long as a strong concept remains I can work upon that alone. For personal work I refuse to sacrifice my style and character for a more accepted route and am willing to meet these obstacles head-on as my future as an artist blossoms.
