Livermore, CA

"Owner of Only Up LLC, Founder of OUTBREAK mural festival, Publisher of the Feel Project, Creator of Pictures For People"
I am inspired by the idea that artwork has the power to spark movements and systems greater than myself. I think of my artwork as a journal of moments, feelings, and concepts, which I demonstrate by a mix of symbolism, mediums, and subjects. My artworks are schematic, inviting the viewer to move into a space of speculation. I have branded myself an Art-tre-pre-neur because I aim to leverage my natural proclivity for hustle to propel me throughout my career.
