How old were you when you started painting and how did you obtain training as an artist?

I used to paint when I was a child, but I actually started painting as a hobby my second year of community college. I would take art classes alongside my regular courses for fun. I would say my art journey began in 2016 when I was 20.


I realized in college that art was my true passion, I taught myself how to paint, then eventually took art classes that were specific to painting. 

What would you like to do with your art as your career unfolds?



Currently, I work as an art instructor. My dream has always been to teach art. I’ve just completed my bachelor’s degree in studio arts at Cal State University Fullerton, and I plan on applying for my masters very soon! I hope to one day teach university level art as a professor, specializing in drawing and painting. 

Who is your own favorite artist and what is your greatest source of inspiration? ?

One of my favorite artists include one of the old masters, Michelangelo.

 I would say my greatest source of artistic inspiration would be color. Specifically in nature, landscapes, skies. My favorite things to paint are nature scenes
