When the pandemic hit I moved back to California to be close to my family. That period of time helped me rediscover my love for being creative. One day while staying at a friend’s house in Bel-Air drawing my abstract faces on a pair of jeans shorts, my friend noticed and asked me to paint something on canvas for the house. I found that painting on canvas was a wonderful way to alleviate the stresses that the uncertain times was putting on all of us. Canvas after canvas was my therapy. I started my first art project, which I call 1156, and after 90 days, I was able to fill the walls of my friend’s beautiful house. From there I started to make art for more homes, stores and restaurants around California.
