Art has always been a huge part of my life, even when I was trying to reject it. My parents are artists, and as a teenager I rejected my passion for art simply because it was what my parents loved. As an adult, I have accepted my passion for design and illustration. I have embraced my love for drawing, hence my focus on illustration in my designs. Illustration always seems to come naturally to me and that is where I seem to start in all of my work. I am inspired by many illustrators, mainly comic, tattoo and graffiti artists. Their ability to think outside the box and push boundaries constantly inspires me to reach toward new heights within my own work. Although, my work may not resemble the work of the people I am influenced by, I believe it shares the same feeling and intentions.
