Growing up the black sheep in a conservative, WASPy family, I knew I’d probably always stick out at least a little. Life in a small California Central Valley town definitely isn’t as glamorous as it may sound, in high-school my peers and I referred to our town as Methdesto (Modesto).Nonetheless, what else is a young, artistic queer to do other than spend all their time drawing.
I’ve spent years filling sketchbooks and to this day I’m not totally sure how many I have built up in my storage. As I got older I slowly expanded into sculpture and painting in a more studious attempt at developing myself as an artist. My favorite sculpting mediums are wire, polymer clay, and ceramics! I also adore oil painting, but I’ll need a totally cat free space in order to really work on one (since they stay wet so long and cat hair flies). I’m also slowly trying my hand at comic development with a few story-lines I’ve begun writing up.
It’s no secret that my collection is an eclectic one, and for ages I believed that that made it “unsellable” because there was no overall rhyme or reason to my pieces. I simply make the art I like to see, I make expressions of momentary feelings and ideas. I love going with the flow of each day and seeing where it takes me, allowing myself to create and live as freely as I can.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my art! I’m slowly but surely finding my footing as a professional artist and appreciate all kinds of support!
