My paintings are portrait based with paintings of pop culture icons and dogs.

I create art because it is what brings me the most joy.


I would say the impact my art gives is to just do what you love. A lot of my pieces were done in less than a week and it is a reflection of the dedication I have for my art. I hope to inspire others to put their whole heart into whatever it is they want to do, even if it isn’t art.
