"You are like a child, alive and discovering the world for the first time," I am told while leaping from rock to rock in the uncharted Desolation Wilderness at the edge of South Lake Tahoe. I have had a rich and varied educational experience, ranging from the typical private schooling processes, self-directed studies, observation of nature (both human and fauna) and, what I believe is most important: by having an open mind. I have a love for science and psychology, a detail-oriented eye for aesthetics, and I am never happier than when my hands are moving busily to adjust my ideas into reality. I work assured that the key to survival is adaptation, and one cannot adapt to the constantly changing environment without education and the openness to try something new. This is my philosophy.
I am an artist, facepainter, muralist, sculptor, teacher, writer, and student of life. I am open to illustration, portrait art, and working with children and teenagers to create their visual dreams. I have worked as a youth art instructor for 10 years, using materials such as oil pastels, acrylics, watercolor, oil paint, charcoal, clay, and soft pastels. I am also a facepainter, available for fairs, birthdays, or any other special events or parties. I am interested in illustrating for books and I am also a portrait artist.
I believe everything is connected, and we artists have the tools necessary to share our dreams and inspire people to follow their own.
I am available for work in and around all San Jose areas.
