The exhibition features a work composed of variety of mediums from all around the globe.

The exhibition will remain "on display", featured on the website beginning today: May 1st through May 31st 2020.
I'm happy to share with everyone my first book release: Equilibrium:An Advanced Coloring Book! This project began it's early stages as far back as late 2016 and I recently completed the designs and had to go through several rounds of approval and 3 proofs to get to this point. I meticulously traced original drawings of my own and created these symmetrical compositions. (Currently in development of a volume 2, giving myself a break) The book features 18 full pages of designs to color, paint, or just to look at. I've shared some sample pages here! The book is 8.5"x11", black and white paperback, printed on demand through Amazon.

Hello everyone! I've been keeping myself busy the past month. I started a new job (in my field of study), secured and am planning a solo exhibit in May-Late June (more info on this in the upcoming week). But in the meantime, I've been working on adding art related videos on my channel. I have uploaded 2 within the past 2 weeks! This is an accomplishment considering the last video I did was about 3 months ago! I decided to post these here and give an update.
It's been a while since I've posted an update of any kind on this website. I've been doing a lot of work here behind the scenes, applying for shows, residencies, and odd jobs of the like. No major news as of yet but I thought if anyone who reads these would be interested in an update. If you aren't already aware, I have a Youtube channel. I haven't posted very much on there but I'm hoping to change that in the near future (I have some ideas in mind). I posted a speed paint video at the end of January on my channel. I have posted here for easy access.
