This mission is my soul purpose, there’s nothing more that I want, but share my stories with the world. I have learnt that life not a fairy-tale, but if I can find the fun in being inspired by mythical characters and use them as a reference to someone I used to know to make my work fun and expressive.

Art feeds my creative, it allows me to interpret the world around me, it some how evokes my emotion, sketching illustrations in my writing book. Those images come to life and I transfer them in to my music, they both go hand in hand.
Ever since I can remember I have held a pencil to paper. An obsession found me, aged 4 and took me on this journey. I was able to express my emotions through the pictures I drew, like my music it became my get away, found me closure and a sense of belonging a daydreamers dream come true.
Now I still draw, and paint working on commission pieces, this story continues.
