I grew up with a book in one hand and a pencil and paper in the other. I made images inspired by the language of great authors, hoping to bring to life what I saw vividly in my mind. Now, I strive to incorporate more of myself in my work. Inspired by the need for representation in art, the most important part of my work is the process. Whether I'm creating with markers, colored pencils or watercolor, I hope to always tell stories that people of any background can identify with.
