“With no prior art or business training I quit my job in October 2014 to pursue my dream of becoming a professional artist. Soon after I found myself homeless, through this situation I stayed focused and slowly but surely started selling more art.

In my practice, I primarily use acrylic but I use all different types of materials in artwork.  Through my Instagram I focus on trying to reach a wide range of audiences, primarily buyers, since I’m not represented by an sty gallery. I do try and reach anyone who can possibly lead to opportunities to show or sell art.
