About

I'm a freelance artist developing Product & Concept Designs, 3D Sculptures and Animations. I'll narrow my focus and share examples related to representational art.


The above is a digital sculpt I did in as a practice to learn some new software.



My desire to learn motivated me to seek training from the Florence Academy of Art drawing program, character animation at CalArts, entertainment design at the Pasadena Art Center College of Design, and painting at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art... ugh, that's a mouthful 😅



I got hooked on the instant gratification of alla-prima portrait sessions for a minute.




This one above is of my grandpa. He had lost his vision by now and couldn't see the painting. But he sat for 2hrs nonetheless and trusted that I was up something worthwhile. I love this man.



Here's my first digital plein-air. I had just purchased an iPad and was testing out the Infinite Painter & Procreate apps. This is from my travels to India, Tamil Nadu, where I remained during the first year of the global lock-down.


These are colorful examples are about 3 to 4 feet tall and where performed on stage in concert with live bands. Perhaps the most spontaneous and thrilling painting experience for me thus far.



Every now and then, you can find me teaching Portrait & Plein-Air painting classes and workshops when time permits.



I love exploring any medium that gets my hands dirty. Here's a creature mask I was sculpting in clay for a latex cast.


I'm always taking courses online to learn new techniques and programs that expand my ability to serve my clients with the latest trends in technology and production pipelines.


I'm really excited and looking forward to meet all of you and learn from such an awesome lineup of amazing artists!
