I am a Michigan/Detroit-based artist and through my work I am to capture beauty mixed in with a touch of surreal influence, with the use of bold colors, compositions, and sculpture. I mainly work in oil paint but started out drawing since I was three. I aim to achieve a dream-like state through slightly distorted images of reality; something strange to the conscious mind but familiar and inviting to the unconscious; something to take the viewer to a place where all things are interconnected. My time spent living in Korea for two years and Japan for several months has influenced me to push for more spiritual inspired content, and the use of meaningful metaphor through form while maintaining a certain aesthetic is something I value in art. I graduated the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI in 2013 with a major in Automotive Design and currently work as an automotive designer in Auburn Hills, MI and have been exhibiting paintings in Detroit for the past few years.
