As a veteran of the Marine Corps, I've learned the importance of precision, structure, and organization. I've dedicated four years to have those qualities embedded in me. While I they are installed in me, I've never perfected them, and I don't intend to. The freehanded, impromptu paintings are in some way, a rebellion against perfection, precision, structure, and organization. The lucidity of watercolors felt refreshing after leaving a bold world such as the reality of the military. I aim for simplicity, I take inspiration from nostalgia, and I like to put my daydreams in view.
