I grew up finding my passion for art at a really young age, holding a brush or pencil in my hand ever since I was a small kid. I was born and raised in Houston by my loving parents, who have supported my art career till this point as I am currently 17 years of age. As the years have gone by, our world has seen new trends in art emerge, but I tend to stick with the traditional aspects of an impressionist, being very loose and daring with my colors and strokes. In my works, I strive to elicit the very nature or beauty of the scenery, sometimes the unique, vibrant characteristics of a face, or perhaps a conceptual idea revolving around an abstract frame.

Through my eyes, I feel that the early pioneers of art bequeathed their styles and techniques to us, their passion and love for the field of art - all of which I have incorporated into my artistic personality. In conjunction with the traditional motives displayed in my art, I’ve mixed up my collection to exhibit a wide range of skills and knowledge of vast mediums and styles. My school art curriculum has greatly benefited my maturity as an artist as I came to appreciate and admire the different generations of art, and ultimately, the idea of how visual arts have evolved. Being a member of the Texas Artists Association and Contemporary fine art is quite a privilege for a young artist like me, and has defined my emergence as a professional artist.

Currently I am a professional member of Comtemporary Fine Art International, Signature member of Artists of Texas, and an associate member of American Impressionist Society.
