My love affair with art started at the age of two when I first witnessed my babysitter draw a ballerina. Ever since that moment my life has been inextricably bonded with the draftsman aspect of the visual arts. I specialize in organic subject matter with heavy influences from the Art Nouveau and Japanese anime/manga styles.
I took my hobby to the next level by pursuing a career in digital media at Marist College. There, I gained a decent handle on the stylus and interned for companies like Guisonni-Yoe Inc. I departed with a decent repertoire of digital art programs, a prestigious baccalaureate award, and a degree received summa cum laude.
As fate would have it, I am now residing in the Berkshires, managing a gym! At 25, I am still toying with the idea of pursuing a career in art but am wary of the economic consequences of such a decision. For now, I enjoy art at a hobbyist's level, creating pieces for groups here on deviantart.
