I'm a New Orleans based artist known for photo-realistic drawings and paintings of people. Raised in Lafayette, LA, I focused on music for much of my young life, only finding my passion for drawing in late high school and early college. After moving back to New Orleans in 2013, I began to focus more seriously on honing my artistic abilities and taking on commissions wherever I could find them. While I'm still developing my craft, I have become fascinated with the intimate and magical process of bringing a person's character to life. I currently live and work out of my house/studio in Mid City, New Orleans.MID CITY
