How did you get into art?

I've always loved to build and create. Art gave me a hobby to create endlessly with no limits or ceilings.

Who are your inspirations?

I take my inspirations from nature mostly. The world provides so much beauty and magic to take inspiration from- I hope to capture the same awe it brings me with my work. Also my Highschool English teacher, Mr. Lopez, pushed me to be in art and theater courses even if I was super shy because he saw how it sparked the fire in me. I don't think I would have been brave enough to go as far as I have if it wasn't for his unshaking confidence in me.

What would you call your art style?

Depending on the medium- I typically go for a cartoon style in my drawings, but I love attention to detail and fun use of colors.

What medium do you prefer?

I mostly use acrylic paint and canvas- but I dabble in a little bit of everything. I make cosplay and props, wood burn, make jewelry, and especially paint; room murals all the way to detailed mini figs and everything in between.




 What your favorite piece of art you've done?

I don't know if I have a favorite? I always strive for fun new creations. Maybe my wooden skulls painting?

Do you have a place that inspires you?

The forest and the ocean. They bring out this idea in me of being so small and alone for what seems like forever while being completely surrounded by sensation.

Do you have a favorite art museum?

I don't actually- I've only been to a few when I was a kid.

Anything else you would like to add?

Share your work no matter how "good" or "bad" you think you are. I have been inspired by so many friends who have amazing skill that arent confident in their talent.
