Born and raised in the South Bay Area, I pursued an education at San Jose State University where I graduated with a BFA in Illustration in 2005. After graduation, I spent my summer exploring the islands of Hawaii. After my return, I packed my bags and headed north for San Francisco where I currently reside with my cat, Patches, while my parents now spend their days in Arizona. I recently opened my doors for business with my new store front studio located in Downtown San Francisco. I frequent Arizona and New York, and I am inspired by the motion of the city and the stillness of open land. (bio)

I love your unique, almost cubist vision! Really unusual, but not unsettling. To the contrary, these works are compelling – you WANT to look at them. They have movement and appear to have “secrets” as well that make you look more closely. Very good. Bravo!
