Artist Statement:


I am not here to please every single person.  I am not here to please even a majority of the people.  I am here to create thoughtful, engaging, and emotional art that challenges viewers and clients to think outside of the box.  I, like many others before me, have pursued this career with the knowledge of all the hardships, but also with the hope for all the best.  I create illustration and design that reflects a personal message and style that I wish to convey to the growing universe around me.


Art has been an integral part of my personality for years, and I would like to share it with as many people as I possibly can.  I create for satisfaction.  I create for enjoyment.  I create for personal growth.  And most of all, I create because I want to, not because I have to.
