I'm a Black and Hispanic artist born in Austin TX. I'm 28 years old with 2 cats and my primary medium is paint.
I've been drawing since I was about 4, and I started painting at 18. I'm a full time artist and my father is also an artist.
My main inspiration at the moment is color and how colors compliment, contrast and clash to create interesting visual harmonies that resonate energy. I also aim to depict people as divine beings and want people to see their own divinity reflected back at them, especially people of color. I feel it's very important that people of color are represented at this crucial time in our world. But I also want to transcend race with my use of of vivid colors and surreal skin tones, and shift people of color to people of colors. I love being a Black Artist but I Am an Artist first and foremost.
