I am an oil painter from Long Beach, California. In 2010 I earned my BA in Art Studio from UC Davis.

I grew up constantly drawing my favorite cartoon and video game characters and knew from a young age that I wanted to make art for the rest of my life. I was introduced to oil paints in high school, and I’ve been working with them ever since.

My subject matter is often times inspired by the paranormal and the supernatural, and my style is influenced by the work of the Old Masters and the contemporary paintings of Pop Surrealists and Low Brow artists.
