Monterey Park, CA

Birth year


exhibition/performance, figurative, modern, realism, gallery installation, publication, collective, arts-education pop


Since the age of 8 years I have been drawing (graphite) and exprimenting with various mediums. In the last 3 years I started to show and sell at group art shows and exhibits. The major pay off in showing art is the support and humanity felt when interacting within the art community (i.e., collectors, curators, gallery owners, art aficionados, friends/family). To know and see that there is a substantial amount of people supporting the visual arts is definitely exhiliarating! My medium of choice is pastel, since I feel it is an underepresented medium. My subject matter varies from figurative/portraiture to still life.

Some places that I have shown my art are: Casita del Pueblo (Whittier), Gallery Azul (San Pedro), Cactus Gallery (Eagle Rock), Safari Sam's (Hollywood), San Gabriel Fine Arts Association, Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (Hollywood), I-Browse Coffee Shop (Alhambra).

 I wanty to thank Artslant for having a forum which promotes and supports the arts and the artists, allowing respective form of expression (art) readily available to the masses.
