About Me
 

I've been drawing and doodling as long as I can remember, although my passion for art really took off around 2004 when I started volunteering and the Riverside Art Museum in Riverside, CA. I was introduced to printmaking and exposed to many great artists and curators. Though my college education is not complete I have studied fine art at Riverside Community College and Portland State University.

I went vegan on August 9, 2011 and shifted my artworks focus to vegan and animal rights themes in 2013 along with custom commission works. My goal for 2014 was to build a portfolio and seek a tattooing apprenticeship, which I found under the mentoring of Andrew Sussman at DermalGrafix tattoo in Escondido, CA. I worked at a grocery store while maintaining my apprenticeship and two years later here I am! I'm now a full time tattoo artist at DermalGrafix!
