Drawing and painting runs in trickles through out my family on my mothers side. I have been drawing and painting since I could hold a pencil or brush. I always knew that I wanted to be an artist. I grew up in California going back and forth from the bay area to the San Joaquin Valley. My earliest memories come from when I was living in San Jose and my parents would bring my brothers and sisters and I to different leadership structured conferences and marches. I believe that because I was surrounded by so many leaders and people willing to fight for different causes that it soaked in to my well being and is apart of me very deeply. As I grew older I felt that I could use my art work as a weapon and a voice. I feel that I am developing very positively throughout the years and feel that I will never have a point in my life with out me painting. I can be contacted for more questions or commissioned work through my email at email@example.com.
