"A little about me... I have been passionate about art since I was
able to wield a pencil, doodling on scratch paper, school desks,
and painting on my bedroom walls... My life as an artist really
started taking off during my late teens, early twenties when I really
grasped the important principles of art such as form, lighting, and
color theory. I draw my inspiration from colors, textures, and
lighting on various objects and people in the environment around
me. I love visualizing how I would break them down and arrange
them to make something beautiful and pleasing. The type of art I
make has always been bright, fun, and full of color and has a pop
art flavor with a touch of hyper-realism. I have experienced just
about every medium there is but my favorite mediums to work in
are Colored Pencil, Oil Paint, and Gouache & Ink. As a
professional artist, I create commissioned works, teach private art
lessons, and group colored pencil classes."
