Artist Statement

"I was born and raised in Southern California, I have always been drawn to painting. I self taught originally with oil, but ventured out to watercolor and fell in love. Now I am a freelance illustrator, painting custom and original watercolors in my own simplistic style along with some fan art of my favorite movies and shows. I am very grateful to be able to make a living selling my art, I have always wanted to but didn't think it would ever be possible. For the past five years I have painted over 1,500 custom original watercolors for people all over the world. Along with my original pieces and prints. I have been featured on and published in Flair magazine in the Netherlands."
