I grew up in Phoenix and moved to Prescott in August 2016. I have been drawing my whole life. I started going to New School for the Arts and Academics my sophomore year of high school where I was taught by artists Matt Dickson and Kyllan Maney, who were integral to my growth as an artist. Throughout high school, I built up my basic drawing and painting skills, mostly focusing on people as my subjects. Now I’m out of school and developing my personal style, experimenting with surrealism and abstract expressionism. Art is everything to me. It is how I express my feelings; I like using art better than words. I couldn’t live without art.
