Art has been an important part of my life from early on. I grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons and was fascinated by the variety of drawing styles used in all the shows. I was inspired to draw in order to have the cartoon characters I liked the most, be present every day of the week.
During my teens my brother Martin bought his first camera and began to experiment with that medium. I often helped him with his photo shoots and tagged along to the shows he participated in. I went away to college, UC Irvine, and to my surprise my dorm had a dark room. I immersed myself in photography, spending countless hours developing my own film and printing images.
It was in college that I began to grow curious about other art forms. Even though my major was in science, biology, I took art classes every semester, including painting, drawing, and ceramics.
Post college, I continued to play with various art forms, but it was not until I moved to San Francisco in 2005 that I started to take art more seriously. The city has been an amazing source of inspiration; the architecture, eclectic residents, and breathtaking vistas have fueled my desired for expression through collage, photography and paintings.
