Artist Statement/Bio

I was born and raised in North Carolina and found my love for art at an early age. I started with drawing and was inspired by comic books, watching cartoons, etc. As I grew older I expanded my tastes and inspirations. I learned to capture the moment via photography or express my emotions and inspiration through painting or drawing. Over time through struggle and heartache, I knew that art was the only way to express myself. Art is also my release for my ideas and inspirations whether they are through dreams or those sporadic moments of sudden vision.

About My Work

My work is a reflection of the interpretation of my ideas whether it is about my surroundings, my dreams, or myself. I do not limit myself to one medium, style, or concept. Inspiration and ideas change and different mediums allow me to express those different ideas and inspiration. With each piece I am revealing my past, present, and future along with my experiences. My process is about being guided by my creativity and inspiration then letting the brushes and canvas help further express that part of myself. I hope to connect to others through my art and my experiences.
