Since I could hold a crayon, I've had a passion to create. It was only a hobby until 2015 when I painted a mural in a popular restaurant and received an overwhelming response. Several murals in several restaurants later, the opportunity arose for a career in art. Architecture and Design have been at the forefront of my career and have helped provide the skills, creative thinking and confidence for my art. Structure, proportion, scale and harmony are fundamentals practiced in architecture. For me, all of these relate equally to art and are apparent in the human form, portraits in particular. A constant theme with my most recent pieces is translating realistic proportions from an image or real life to a flat canvas. Although my education in fine arts is limited, I have always gravitated to learning and understanding an artist’s approach to their work. By reciprocating this knowledge and applying it to everything I learn and create, I will continue to grow on this artistic journey. “Details make perfection and perfection is not a detail.” – Leonardo Da Vinci
