Biography

I Am a self taught artist from Sacramento, CA, I have been drawing since childhood and watercolor painting since 2014. I like to paint images that convey internal conflict through colors, body language in the figures and environment. My work is heavily inspired from my love of history, movies and film photography. I attended the Academy of Art University for traditional animation and storyboards. For work I take commissions and exhibit/sell my work at conventions like Monsterpalooza, DesignerCon and C2E2. I'm just beginning to get my work in galleries. In my freetime I’m working on two personal comics titled “Pumpkin Guard” and “Nocturminal.”
