"As an artist I have found the freedom and voice I never knew I had before. I devoted my life to art at a pretty old age but it has completely become my passion since 2015, defining the person I am today. As I am ever-evolving my art continues to evolve with me; my art connects motion with emotion as I depict nostalgic scenes and images with vibrant animated colors and unique brush strokes. Various art forms have always motivated my pieces as I enjoy experimenting with different mediums, surfaces and processes. In the past few years, I have lost both my older brother Brett and my father, two of my biggest supporters and inspirations who truly sparked my desire to be an artist. I continue to be inspired by them and plan to honor their legacy forever. I believe several parts of them have been passed down to me especially the power to bring people together in a group, the love for all things nostalgic, standing up for those without a voice and an undying passion for every art form.
Since 2018, I have been curating art exhibitions with artists of all mediums to not only bring together as many people as possible through different forms of art, but also come together to offer a platform for marginalized artists, recognizing and appreciating these artists, while also giving back to the community. Each show has donated back to a non-profit organization. Past organizations include the Debbie Allen Dance Academy, The East LA Women's Center, Women's Foundation of California, Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, and more. COVID-19 has taken us in many twists and turns but the art never stops and never will. Upcoming shows to be announced."
