When I was little, I loved writing and illustrating stories. There was a natural connection, for me, between art and storytelling. In school art classes, I found myself inclined to make art which had underlying meaning and stories—wanting to tell more than meets the eye. Although I won art awards and enjoyed making art, I set it aside to pursue other endeavors after high school.
My love for art never strayed, however. I traveled the world visiting famed art museums, studied art history, and crossed paths with other artists. In 2011, I returned to my call to make art and have been active as a self-taught painter since.  My paintings explore style and creativity, ranging from realism to abstract. I enjoy creating a world of imagination and telling stories through art. I’m currently based in Los Angeles and exploring opportunities to exhibit and sell my artwork.
