Currently a footwear designer working in Manhattan, my true passion has always been fine arts. I have been painting and drawing since I can remember and have a very technical mind coming from a family of engineers, metal workers and pilots. I originally pursued my life long dream of being an automotive designer by attending the College for Creative Studies in Detroit Michigan. I eventually switched gears into Industrial Design, then into athletic footwear and have now spent the past 10 years in the fashion industry in New York City. Residing in Brooklyn, my love for sketching, painting and creating has been an active part of my spare time. I have created a series of Mirage paintings which I have submitted for this competition and have also continued my love for realism through sketching, oil paintings on canvas and have recently completed a 7' floral mural which was an amazing experience for me. I have finally built a foundation where I am ready and excited to share my art with the world!
