Bio

My artwork takes a critical view of social issues. As an artist, I work hard, aiming to speak to everyone about the beauty that lies within self-expression. Part of my process is to determine how my own characters, such as Decardo, Shareia, Chelsea, or Xavier are going to be displayed. My designs are based on Anime characters. I do not merely want to draw with colored pencils, but instead want to give my characters life to represent my life.
Techniques I use such as value, shape, and color best communicate my ideas for my artwork by drawing my own characters to express and tell stories about myself. I aim to decode expression, animation, video games, friends, and dance styles that are part of my childhood and memories. The challenge along with creating my own characters on paper is to show how each character represents my personailities and beliefs. Each character I draw shows a different side of me and a set of roles I have as a person. My artwork speaks, not only for me, but also for the art community that motivates me to create my artistic dream world.
