Bio

I have been doing art for as long as I can remember. When I was young I was constantly scribbling on paper (and sometimes even the walls) with crayons, markers, and pencils. This passion to create has never left me, it just grew and evolved as I did. This is what drove me to get a BFA in animation from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, and an associates degree in specialized business: special effects makeup from Douglas Education Center. After completing my formal education, I apprenticed to learn the art of tattooing. I have now been tattooing for over a year. It is my goal to combine my love of a variety of different mediums and techniques to create the greatest end results possible for whatever project I am working on. No matter if I'm sculpting a crazy creature, or doing a colorful, cartoony tattoo, I am only truly happy when I'm fully engulfed in my artistic imagination.
