I grew up in Loomis and was always surrounded by art or creativity. I took art classes through high school but fell out of the practice when I went to university. After graduating university with an engineering degree, I rediscovered art and use it as a release from my career as an engineer. Art allows me to explore, create, and to exercise a different part of my head. My work has evolved from playing around with some oil pastels to getting more serious with acrylics and also completing a few murals.
