[26 Phx, AZ]
Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA — I have known nothing but to create, I was that kid that could not pay attention in class while drawing in text books or thinking of the next coolest thing I can make. Thankfully, I have been blessed to continue doing that for a living. After deciding to pursue graphic design instead of fine art, I attained my BSD from Arizona State University. I have a background in the design industry ranging from logo design to illustration. In the midst of my design career, my desire to create art arose from the ashes and once again I began to draw & paint. I branded myself as Mad Charcoal to reflect the style of my work. I create pieces ranging from charcoal to paint and mixed media, mostly focused on portraiture and figuritive work with an emphasis is achromatic values and expressive nature.
