I began drawing at 5 years old after seeing my Dad draw a picture of a truck. I remember asking him to draw me something else and he said “why don’t you?” and I haven’t stopped drawing since that day. After High School I studied at The American Academy of Art and began tattooing in 2014. I would consider my tattoo style a mixture of illustrative, Japanese and Traditional. I enjoy creating one of a kind pieces that I can put my own weird spin on and love incorporating nature, bugs, animals and skulls into my art. Every tattoo I do is important to me. I challenge myself every day to become a better artist and person in general. I spend most of my time drawing for my appointments, studying art and when I’m not busy with work I paint for myself and travel with my fiancé.
