Welcome to my Blog!
I’ve been drawing and painting portraits since I was nine years old, only then I called them my pretty ladies.
I was born and raised in Provo, Utah. I have lived in Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, and the Russian River of Sonoma County, California. Every place I’ve lived has influenced my art. Sometimes the subject matter changes, or it might be my colour pallet. Sometimes it’s the medium, the materials, or tools that change.
I’ve lived in the Vancouver area of British Columbia since 2008. I studied at Emily Carr University of Art and Design and earned a certificate in Fine Art Techniques. The foundational and specialized courses enhanced my skill and confirmed my love for Art making.
I wanted to improve my writing skills to effectively communicate and articulate the stories behind my art. I hired a writing coach and started a daily writing practice. I started reading more—a lot more. I’ve now realized that writing has become a new medium for making art. I continue to make visual art and I intend to share it here, along with my essays.
Thank you for stopping by.
