I recently quit my factory job of 11 years to pursue art full-time. I grew up in Evansville. I studied biology for 3 years at the University of Southern Indiana. My brothers and I messed around with sketching as children and all of us had almost entirely abandoned fine arts until recently.
I discovered I had ADHD and began counseling and a supplement regimen that helped me focus long enough to actually finish some of the doodles I would do in the breakroom at work. For the first time in my life, I really liked my output. I started talking to artists who helped me find resources and gave me instruction on how to refine my art. I’m still learning and intend to keep doing so until the day I die.
I want to feel a sense of community in art, I want to talk to people about art, and I want YOU to reach out to me so we can be creative together. Through my art I want to ask questions to the universe or meet other people who have similar questions.
I spend most of my time daydreaming and wondering how the world got here and why it is the way it is. My art is inspired by curiosity, and I find the aimless stroke of black pen on white paper while music, an audiobook, or a lecture course plays in the background to be one of the most therapeutic things to my ever racing mind.
