I have been drawing since I was 7, I started doing it as means to get away from an abusive father at the time. I kept it up until I was 19 and I friend suggested I draw on a canvas and then paint my drawing. From there my paintings started to develop. Fast forward, now at the age of 29; I have been involving myself a lot more in the art community. I am an artist for the non profit XICO art organization. I have also been featured in the St. Vincent De Paul magazine for Arizona for donating a mural for their Dream Center. I have been exhibited at Charles Schwab twice (my day job) and my donated mural was also part of their Schwab foundation. Today I am trying to get myself out there more and am looking to get into mural painting to become part of downtown Phoenix and better known throughout The Valley. I have been in a few art shows and am trying to make my way into galleries wherever I can. My paintings have developed since I first started with some having deep symbolism concerning human rights and also culture. I am very proud of how far I have come since I am self taught and have never been to art school. I plan to work hard and make my mark in the art world. So for now I’m along for the art ride!
