I'M HERE!!! Yes, it's been a long while. I just really haven't had much to write on. Art has pretty much been abandoned this year. It's really sad, I know.

The good news is that I'm working hard to get into VCU in Richmond for the Spring semester. Now that I actually have a job I can get all kinds of good stuff to improve my porfolio. I'm thinking about a couple of scultures and a few more paintings and life drawings. I'm trying to get my porfolio to look as appealing as possible.

After this, I'm thinking I really need to get together a physical porfolio and carry it around with me. You never know...

I don't know why but after taking a modern art history class, I've become a lot more confident in my ability to make it in the art world. Not that it'll be easy, but I can really tell I have a passion for this. It comes natural to me. I have all these ideas floating around in my head and I can't wait to make them a reality.

So yeah, that's pretty much it! Just lots to do. Things are coming together though. I don't know if it's G-d or my attitude towards life (OR BOTH!), but things seem to be in my favor. Lets hope it stays this way.

I'm currently an art student majoring in graphic design and minoring in art history. Finally making it to art school has been amazing. I am continueally amazed by the creative energies around me. Those vibes help me to grow and mature as an artist.

I think I'm in the process of refining my skills at the moment, and truly finding my own artistic voice. My goal is to remind the viewers of the wonder they once felt as a child. Many of us forget what that is like once the toils of our daily lives hit us, and yet, I believe we all still carry that child full of wonderment within. That child once saw beauty and maybe even magic in everything. I want my art to take the viewer back to that place, even if for just a few minutes.

My gallery is a bit outdated as of right now, but recent artwork will be posted soon. Feedback is always welcome!
