Hi there. I'm an Artist and California-native currently living and working in the Oakland Hills. Specializing in two-dimensional art, my studio is typically full of anthropomorphized paintings and drawings of goats, bears, deer, foxes, bison and many other furry creatures, but I also paint more traditional portraits of people, animals, and nudes. I've been working professionally as an Artist since graduating from San Francisco State University in 2008 with a degree in Studio Art. After receiving my teaching credential for Art from CSU, Chico in 2010 I have been teaching high school students in the East Bay, with hopes of inspiring young artists to pursue careers in Art and Design. I also give private painting and drawing lessons, working with all ages and skill levels. When I'm not building my empire, I'm writing creatively, picking some banjo strings, strumming a guitar, walking through the woods or baking a pie.
