What would you say you do, creatively speaking?
Through painting and photography I can give you a glimpse of what I focus on and how I turn my life into art.
When and how did you start?
I started drawing as a young child, and it seems I really enjoyed it. I would usually draw cartoon characters and super heroes from shows and movies. Eventually, I preferred drawing from my imagination. I’ve told myself that I am an artist as a kid, I have a book I made from the second grade where I declared that I would be an artist when I grew up.
Who all has supported you?
I always felt like I’ve had support. My family would encourage me to draw through out my life and into adulthood and so did my friends. The biggest support I receive is from my wife Adriana, not only has she supported me she also pushes me. It wasn’t until we were together that I actually painted on my first canvas
Who or what has inspired or influenced you?
I get inspired by so many things! Where should I start?
What has been your favorite part on this journey?
Have you ever wanted to give up?
What advice would you give to someone who wants to begin selling their work or putting themselves out there?
Take the leap! Show up, show yourself, get out of your comfort zone. Give yourself a fighting chance. Leave doubt alone and listen to truth.
Has anything pleasantly surprised you? What?
Community and support.
Is there anything you wish you would have known when you first started?
How to get out of my own head.
What is your definition of success?
Success to me is getting deep into the work and growing as a artist. Showing people a different way of seeing the world, then of course using the personal platform to make positive change to people who could use some help.
What are your dreams?
Dreams are special, we all have something we want or desire. I just really want to be able to go places and experience more with my family.
