"I desire to open the eyes of the world, make them see it is both a dark place but a wonderful place. It consists of both opposite qualities. Yet, despite it all, it teaches us so much as we grow old with experience."
Born in 1988 in Brooklyn (NY), I had always had a love for art ever since I was 5 years old. Living the rest of my life in Staten Island, I pursued my education in art at such locations as the Art Labs at Snug Harbor Cultural Center, the Art Studio of Staten Island, the Art School of Minneapolis, and Wagner College. As a student I learned the skills of drawing (ink, pastel, and charcoal), painting (acrylic, oil, and watercolor), sculpting, graphic design, and teaching the arts. I also acquired crafting skills in jewelry making. In addition to this, I participated in various art projects at my schools and outside of school at such companies as Soul Joel Productions where I used my graphic design skills for making flyers and pamphlets. I had also used these skills to create this website from its layout to its banners, buttons, and animations. In 2009, my artwork was featured in the Wagner College Union Gallery with several other artists. I had another series shown at Wagner in April of 2010. In July of 2010, my art was exhibited at the Everything Goes Cafe on Staten Island. My goals are to one day use my talents for creating graphic designs or illustrations for advertising or books/comic books. I also hope to share my adoration of art by teaching it to younger individuals who desire to learn it.
