I began painting seriously at 16 years of age my self painting journey begins in San Pedro California and then raised in South Gate California. I started to paint the colors of everyday flow that pumps blue and red tones perfected enough for me to display emotions in contrast tones, daily life sounds, daily life routine, humans , nature and places I greet. In 2014 I birthed my first born son giving birth sparked in me infinite creativity, as I picked up painting again people began to request commissions that also helped motivate me to pursue my career. I moved hometowns in 2016 from Los Angeles city to San Bernardino new small town it began to teach me how to adapt to all circumstances naturally, provoking a need to paint again by being transparent in my works of art from 2016-Current. Now in 2020 I find my art becoming just more known outside of family and friends and now establishing more connections in the artworld itself. I plan to paint my reality as oppose to abstract work to really push my skill ethic and discipline. My visions need to be displayed and painted seriously as oppose to rushing a painting for online platforms. Slowing down my process to execute quality work and a honest representation of my life and current world issues is my new mission. Displaying at a Gallery soon!. Thanks collectors.
