Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
-Thomas Merton

I tend to agree with Mr. Merton- I'm much happier when I believe that.

I've been drawing since I was a little kid...somehow I was fascinated with both Pokemon and ancient Egyptian culture; my sketchbooks were comprised of Pharaohs and Pikachus alike. Drawing, to me, has always been an escape, and when I look back at my artwork after I had long since finished it, it gives me a very satisfying feeling. I try to grow as I learn, to become the best artist that I can be. I welcome constructive criticism like an old friend; I always want to improve. Art, to me, is the one of the very few things I have in my life that doesn't feel like a chore, yet requires a lot of work.

One reason I'm selling my artwork is because, like everyone else, I need the money. I work third shift at a department store for minimum wage and I live mostly on my own with my roommate. I'm very much hoping to get into the tattoo industry in the near future. It's a very scary idea for me but I've loved ink in skin since I was 15. Some days I'm all motivated to do it but some other days I'm scared shitless. But regardless, anything I do in life is going to be scary. For me, it's an opportunity to learn things I never knew I could do.

So that's it, I think. If you would like to drop me an email for any reason, such as a commission, or just if you have a comment on one of my works, you can send it to anything is appreciated!

One more thing...I'm not posting all of my artwork on this website, but you can see just about everything I've done here---->
