I’m a visual artist and Graphic Designer from Los Angeles. My work is a merging of realism and dark surrealism, aesthetically rooted in underground metal artwork and fine art technique. I strive to capture atmosphere and depict beauty as seen through my own lens, often inspired by the darker aspects of nature, anatomy, and human experiences. Over the years of exploring all types of media, I have found the greatest satisfaction in working with oil paint, charcoal, and ink. I am in love with their possibilities and limitations alike, and I never cease to be moved by the way each of them translates onto paper or canvas. My work is a cathartic process of communicating with shadows and light, textural elements, and detailed layering. In each of my pieces I’ve weaved in a part of myself, delving into my own psyche to evoke all that I can’t put into words.
I enjoy pursuing multiple creative outlets, including drawing, painting, lettering, and photography. Apart from my design and fine art work, I am an instructor at Modest Fly Art Inc., where I have the pleasure of sharing my artistic perspective and experience through teaching hundreds of students pursuing their own creative paths — pretty incredible and so rewarding!
