I'm an nineteen-year-old artist from Philadelphia....
and welcome to my website! I've been drawing and painting since I understood what those words meant, and I was self-taught until ninth grade. My teachers and parents were always supportive of my passion along the way. I am from Philly, but I moved to DC the summer of 2014, and will be moving to Brooklyn, NY in 2019.
Art has been a way for me to escape to the thoughts in my mind and translate them onto paper. I want my art to influence others as much as it influences me.
Thank you for your support in visiting this website, and I hope you feel the passion that has gone into every single piece before you.
