I was born and raised in Los Angeles California. I am receiving my BA in Art with a concentration in painting. My artistic influence are artist Francisco Goya, Vincent Van Gogh and Andy Warhol. My inspirations are people living with mental illness and my own mental illness. I use stereotypical media portrayals compared with realistic representations of the ill. I use societal representations, personal stories, and historical context concerning people with different mental illnesses in America.
I use mediums such as oil paint, acrylic paint, and gouache . I use traditional techniques and realistic rendering.
