My work is a combination of: Oil pastels combine the colors, creamy textures, and blending capabilities of oil paints with the control of a drawing medium. My work is a combination of technical precision and whimsical subject matter.
I live in Queens because: I moved from Boston in 2005 when 13 of my former classmates from Mass Art lived in Astoria. I am the last one left.
To instagram or not to instagram: I see it’s value but I am not taking advantage of it as of now.
Being an artist means I pay my bills by: Whatever means necessary haha
Queens could have a better artist community if it: More gallery space and more promotion.
My go to website for ideas: http://todaysinspiration.blogspot.com/, Drawger, Pinterest, Behance,
In 5 years, Queens will mean this to artists: Hopefully will become another renowned hotspot for up and coming artistic talent.
Always: Keep a positive attitude, and keep making art.
Never: Lose sight of your goals, or let discouragement stop you from making art.
My next project is: Story boarding for an advertising animation
