I want to make work that my friends like, that professionals respect, and that strangers can talk about. I am a student of Fine Arts at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria, CA. In the past 4 years, I have taken an array of courses including, ceramics, drawing, sculpture, design, philosophy, art history and painting. I have recently traveled and seen museums, galleries, and historical works of art in Rome, Florence, London, New York, San Francisco Bay Area, and Los Angeles. I am trying everything I can, and being sensitive to what I enjoy most. Things as real as nature and as phony as TV entertainment inspire me. In addition to school, I work side by side with a professional potter/sculptor named Darcy Badiali at his studio in Grover Beach. When I am not at school and work I am in a small studio on my parent’s property painting and creating other works. In the near future, I would like to assist other professionals in the field in preparation to be a professional myself, and continue my education in the arts.
