I began drawing around the age of three and painting with acrylics when I was eleven. I am self-taught and have no formal art education. I have always been passionate about art since I was young but as I get older my creativity and imagination intensifies. My ideas usually just appear in my mind randomly and sometimes my paintings are painted straight from my mind's eye with little to no reference. As a result of this, my artwork varies from realistic to whimsical. I specialize in portraiture but I also paint animals, landscapes, and still life objects. Often my paintings will have symbolic meaning because I like to do a bit of research about the significance of numbers or the language of flowers. I try to make my artwork have a special message so that I can inspire or speak to the heart of the viewer.
