I’m an artist with a passion for blending digital drawing with photographs I’ve taken during my travels. My artistic journey has been anything but conventional, marked by periods of exploration, near dormancy, and a recent resurgence of creativity.
My fascination with art began early in life, as I watched my father draw in his free time. This early exposure sparked my own passion for creativity, leading me to frequently draw, paint, and craft.
Art quickly became more than a hobby; it was an identity. In my last year of high school, I was taking several art classes a day.
After high school, I was accepted into several art schools, and I chose to attend the Massachusetts College of Art. The prospect of artistic growth was enticing, but sometimes life has other plans.
After just one year of formal art education, I made the difficult decision to leave art school. It was a time when my artistic pursuits took a backseat as I navigated life’s responsibilities. Eventually my creative enthusiasm waned.
However, as they say, true passion never really fades; it simply waits for the right moment to reignite. That moment arrived in the past year, when I was inspired to create a series of artworks for a local bar with an aquatic theme.
I chose to try a new medium for creation and started drawing in Photoshop, adding my photography to my digital drawings. I had found a style that I really enjoyed and felt was a good expression of myself.
Today, I find myself amidst an artistic renaissance, eagerly exploring new horizons and reigniting the fervor that drove my work earlier in life. My art celebrates the beauty that often escapes casual observation, and the boundless power of imagination.
I invite you to join me on this artistic journey and to view the world through my lens.
