I started painting and drawing at a young age. I was artistically influenced by my mother. As an early teen I discovered the fine art of graffiti art and I learned how to paint. At around 18 I finished my high school education, from there went to Fine Art Schooling to learn how to oil paint. I received a classical oil painting education similar to those of the French academy. I went to an oil painting atelier program for four years. During that time I began to sell my oil paintings through a local fine art gallery and I have continued my oil paintings to this day.
