I began my formal art training in 2016 at San Diego Mesa College where I built upon my general skills and craftsmanship. After receiving my Associate of Arts degree in Studio Arts, I enrolled at California State University Long Beach where I turned my focus on the mediums that drove me most. I immediately took my first metals class then resolved to get my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Three Dimensional Media: Metals, and become a metalsmith. Alongside metals, I picked up a minor in Art History and am continuing to hone my 2D skills.
Looking ahead, I will actively work to shed the limitations I place on myself, putting my efforts into learning as much as I can about metalsmithing as well as other medias of interest in order to not only become a better artist in skill, but also in passion and innovation.
