What is your bio / story? Step into my world—a realm where imagination knows no bounds, and creativity is an innate way of life. My journey began with sketches of beloved characters, evolving into a symphony of human expression that reflects my unyielding passion. Navigating the commission-based art world wasn't without challenges, but I used every obstacle as a stepping stone to refine my craft and expand my client base.
With unwavering determination, I conquered doubts and embraced my unique style, proving that artistic confidence is a journey in itself.
From unconventional educational detours to mastering design software, my path led to a thriving design career. Yet, my vision extends beyond personal success, advocating for a society that not only recognizes art's value, but fosters it through funding, collaborations, and heightened awareness. Amidst the chapters of my creative journey, 2021 stands as a milestone year - my design for Visit Indy magazine showcased my undeniable talent and resilience.
It's a reminder that a genuine artist's journey entails continuous growth, unyielding determination, and an unwavering pursuit of excellence.
What is your “superpower?
My superpower is just being able to create. I honestly have no idea what I would be doing if it wasn't for the creative world. Art, design, and creative expression truly saved me from the horrors of trying to figure life out some other way.

Who or what inspires you to be the best version of yourself? For a long stretch of my life, self-doubt held me back, keeping me in the shadows. What really fuels my spirit are those naturally expressive individuals who wholeheartedly embrace their true selves without any reservations.
I keep a circle of people around me that want to see me WIN and I want the same for them. I am inspired by the INSPIRED.
