I would like to start by saying that I am an artist before anything else. I live to create. Creativity is my air, and without it I am only a shell with no purpose or direction. Since birth I have lived in my own world. It is a world which has always presented itself to me in colors, lines, and plots. From this perspective, I transcribe my environment into spiral notebooks and sketchbooks. Ironically, I have had little formal education in the art field. In college I picked a fairly easy major that seemed more realistic and useful than pursuing an art major. I breezed through school, and went on to work in many different professions that warranted my degree. After working in numerous unrewarding jobs, I had an epiphany which was incited by 2 simple text messages: “What did u want to do when u were a kid?” and “What stopped u?” I wanted to be an artist and fashion designer and travel around the world helping people. What stopped me? Growing up. I realized at that moment the importance of going back to what makes us happy as kids. I then decided to pursue all the things Ive always wanted to do.
As I continue to grow up, I embrace my outlook more and more, and continue to feed my appetite for all things creative. I also continue to recognize my worth and power. Ultimately, I aspire to help people see their self-worth and realize the power they carry within. We can do anything our minds dream up! I hope my designs help awaken the lions inside us all and inspire us to live life according to our own standards.
