"I am an artist at heart and always have been. I grew up in a very artistic and musical household. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, anything from animals to landscapes. During my later years in high school I began drawing more abstract works in pencil, ink, and charcoal. After high school I started attending community college and took an abstract painting class which is what turned me onto oil painting. In addition to my interest in abstract expressionism I am also into figure drawing and painting.
I gain inspiration for my artwork through emotions, reflections on experiences in my life, through nature with all its wonder and complexity, textures, shapes and creatures, and through music and other artwork.
I am not a full time artist as it does not pay the bills; but it is a passionate hobby of mine. On much of my free time I am also writing and playing music as I am also a guitarist and song-writer.
I am currently working part-time as a Research Associate at McGraw Hill, and attending school part-time working on my masters degree in Statistics at UCSC."
