Welcome to the newest addition to the website, Impressions: The “Blog”


If you don’t know me personally, I am an visual artist from Southern California who specializes in painting and drawing.

I have been drawing and painting since I can remember, but I didn’t really start to pursue a career in the arts until I went to college at the University of Hawai’i. After receiving my art degree (with a focus in painting), I was accepted into a Masters program at Cambridge School of Arts in England. There, I was working with a lot of smaller work and digital illustration. While working on many projects at the desk, I decided I wanted to get back into my larger-scale work. So, I started working on larger pieces again.

Now, here I am building my career in art, nearing 30 years old with an obsession in painting/drawing.


I happen to believe that EVERYONE can be creative.

I also believe that creativity is important to the well-being of us humans and that it is something that can be planted, nurtured and grown. SOOOOO, I thought it would be great to start building a little community of creativity advocates…. like yourself. And guess what? You don’t have to be a professional by any means!

On this website, I wanted to have a platform where I can share a wide range of topics like daily creative exercises, how-tos, tips, concepts, and techniques and then have discussions about them with all of you.

Creativity is much easier to express when you realize all the different ways you can express it and I hope this inspires you to do so.

I look forward to exploring these topics with you and thank you for your support, always!
