I started drawing at a very early age, 5 or 6 years old. I was taught by my brother who later passed away at the age of 25 in 2012 but the seeds that he planted continue to flourish in my life to this day. I grew up in Florida where I attended BAK Middle school of the arts and majored in Visual Arts. It was at that school I had the opportunity to experiment with all types of art mediums from making my own camera from a box to take pictures, developing film in a dark room, creating mobiles, learning and creating with clay, self portraits, acrylic, water color and oil paints, sketching, print making and so many other art forms. I was recommended to audition for Dryefoos High school of the arts but my brother was very ill and my mother was constantly at the hospital with my brother so I couldn't audition to get in. Nevertheless I still continue to pursue my passion in art. I've now began to sell my art work. My desire is to create a space for myself in the art world that allows me to bring Christ in places His name has not been spoken. My medium of choice is acrylic paint and oil but I do not restrict myself. I enjoy telling complex stories and stories of my life through my work. I like for my paintings to have deeper meanings and cause people to really think. I've been through a lot and I believe through my work I have a story to tell! And I am just getting started.
