I am an artist currently living in California.
I was born in Texas, but left when I was seventeen to be a nomad.
At eighteen, I enrolled in college to study psychology. After a couple of years, I realized that I was more in love with the subject than I was with actually pursuing a career in the field. I decided to move to New York City and got into modeling to make extra money.
In 2011, I was introduced to the world of fine art. I left the fashion industry and every other odd job I had acquired and spent the subsequent two years teaching myself how to draw. It was a seemingly long and arduous journey, garnering techniques through trial and error. But every now and then, a small epiphany would occur to assure me I was on the right path. Each step was a building block for the next. And so it has gone ever since… I am constantly learning and trying to better both myself and my work.
I enjoy applying my major influences together in my art - the systemic urge to understand human behavior and the beauty in expressive nuances.
These pieces are not just work to me, they are my life
