I was a hard-core athlete all my life before I began painting. I gained my artistic ability after I was severely sick and injured. The idea behind my style of artwork came from a dream I had during one of the worst nights I have experienced during my illness. I started doing commissions in the beginning mostly for people’s homes. I then began doing commissions for restaurants, doctor’s offices, and salons. Now, I am having solo shows in New York City.
I began painting as a way of therapy because I suffered a severe spinal injury and got sick from an autoimmune disease. I spent several years alone and at one point, I was in a wheelchair due to my illness and injury. I began dreaming of a mystical world full of magical and mystical creatures that possessed great healing power. I began painting my dreams and it became the only thing I could do to escape my horrible symptoms. All of my paintings tell such amazing stories about battling and being strong through very difficult times.
