About Me

I’m an illustrator based out of Los Angeles, CA. I’ve been drawing since age 5 and have no plans on stopping anytime soon. My interests are in subjects like subcultural and international themes, legends, mythology and different eras. Creating Art was always been and will always be my first love, but creating worlds or my characters to live within is another, that is my true passion. Regardless of where life leads me, I plan to do what I love. Because I can’t see being happy doing anything else.

God Bless and Imagination Fuels Creation!!
