It All Began with a Toolbox

Pink to Orange Gradient

Becoming an artist was an unexpected but enjoyable journey prompted by discovering my Grandpa's old toolbox.

Despite English being his only language, he spelled "hammer" wrong TWICE due to his lack of formal education! Yet, he could build a pool complete with a filtration system and turn tomato bushes into 6-foot tall trees! 

 

In honor of his ability to create without a teacher, I dedicated myself to learning multiple new skills throughout my life.

Doodles to Paintings

While making abstract doodles in notebook margins during lengthy college lectures, I wondered, "How far can this go?" My first purchase of art supplies was $30.63, and I held no expectations other than to keep improving.

 

So began waking up at 5:00 AM for five years to paint before work despite selling nothing! Yet, I persisted, moving forward one step at a time.

After years of honing my skills,

I now realize that art reflects society's changing attitudes and beliefs while imagining a brighter future.

So, take a deep breath and relax while enjoying the following flowers! The level of detail invested creates paintings within paintings.

Creating glimpses into a better world that we know is possible  inspires bigger dreams in others.
