"I was blessed to discover my passion for drawing when I was around the age of 10. Drawing has been a means of self expression and meditation for me even as a child with little experience conveying ideas. As an artist, I have seen great improvement throughout my years of drawing as a hobby. I am self-taught, and to this day I have yet to attend a single art class. Nevertheless, I have great faith in my ability to create beautiful, polished images, and others would agree that it shows in my work. I hope to go to an art school in the near future, and I would love to make a living doing what I do best. I appreciate any and all support from those interested in my gallery; there's much more to come."
