I remember first beginning to draw where I grew up, in Tampa, Florida next to the ocean. I later moved to Atlanta, where I began my education career at The Art Institute of Atlanta, where I learned from some of the most amazing artists I've had the pleasure to know. Including Elio Guevera, and Michael Budowick. I've been trained thoroughly with traditional techniques of art, as well as learning about modern commercial and digital applications. I graduated in 2009 with a fine arts bachelor's degree majoring in illustration and design.
In the beginning of 2011 I decided to advance my skills specifically as a fine artist, primarily with oil painting. I started working for an art material store where I met with established professionals in the fine art business, and also learned the chemistry of all art mediums. I left at the end of 2012, coincidentally their 100th anniversary, and continued to dedicate even more time to painting. Sparing about every minute possible I could to paint, only working what hours I needed to part time as a carpenter. After countless days and nights over the years working in my studio, aggressively seeking the aspects of what art is, and what art can be, I've searched not just for meaning of the art, but my purpose to it, and how that reflects visually. I have discovered my own style. I am currently in the final stages of into what I would call my first series. This will be released the beginning of 2015.
