I was born and raised in San Diego, California. The string of fate tugged me across America to New Orleans. I love every aspect of this city. In my life nothing is ever clean-cut, like an abstract collage of Romare Bearden, all the colorful shapes and objects of my past warp together. I use art to figure my shit out. I can't really pinpoint a certain time in my life where I started "art" because, well, I am a firm believer that one's entire life is a sequence of art. I sew, I sing, I paint, I dance, I draw, I act, I sculpt, whatever grabs hold of me at the moment. The grabbing isn' the hard part, the real struggle is holding on, when it comes to me. I am a pretty restless person, always eager to try or see something new. From learning the chinese xylophone to taking a solo impromptu trip to India, I like to surprise myself with inspiration.
