For more than a decade and a half, I've lived a unique double life; spending my days as a seasoned Corporate America professional with over 20 years of experience, and as a traveling tattoo artist and piercer. My early life showcased signs of my inherent creativity and drawing skills, but it wasn't until my friends encouraged me that I truly embraced my artistic inclinations and ventured into the realm of tattoos. The unexpected twist in my journey came with the onset of the pandemic. As in-person meetings with clients were put on pause, I discovered a new love in painting. I found a calming refuge in exploring the vibrant world of colors and canvases. Hence, this marked the start of my artistic expedition.

Artist Statement

My artwork is a rich tapestry, formed from various influences such as Urban Pop Culture and my own personal experiences. Each piece tells a story of encounters I've had, or places I've visited, leaving distinct impressions on the canvas. During challenging periods in my life, the act of painting provided a safe haven. It allowed me to express my feelings and find tranquility amidst the chaos. My goal with each piece of art is to evoke a memory or emotion in the viewer. As I paint, I let my mind wander freely, infusing genuine emotion and authenticity into every stroke. But this is simply the beginning of my artistic journey. I'm excited to explore different mediums and can't wait to see where the journey takes me next. The world of art is full of endless possibilities and I'm eager to discover them.


The human form and portraits captivate me, serving as enduring inspiration for my art. The complexity of expressions and body contours are endless wellsprings of creativity. This exhilarating exploration shapes and influences my future pieces.
