Artist Statement
I've been creating art since I was very young; I would stick to graphite, crayons, markers, and colored pencils. Art has always played a huge role in my life, whenever I'm bored or sad I'll be in a sketchbook creating whatever comes to mind.

My dream is to be able to give back to my family. After everything they've done for me, I think it's only right that I give back. I want to make sure my brothers and my family are safe in life. I have inspired a few students at my school just by the short time I've been creating this type of art, and it feels awesome. I want to do that on a bigger scale.
