B. 1997 Raleigh, North Carolina,
An artist at heart, I have been making things since I can remember.
My work is made using, acrylic, alcohol marker, and archival ink on masonite. I use illustration, spray painting, masking, and airbrushing to create the images. All imagery is hand made (drawn, painted, spray painted, airbrushed) on the substrate, no digital media of any kind is utilized.
It is important to me to create each piece by hand, if you purchase my work you are purchasing a hand crafted original.
