“I primarily draw realistic portraits and do photography. The message I try to convey with my works is to show the beauty, uniqueness, and the positive the world still has to offer. I was blessed to live the dream of mine and become a professional roller derby skater, traveling the world, and being on TV. Unfortunately, injuries ended my dream, but eventually, after recovering, I became a firefighter. Injuries ended that career as well. Sadly nothing lasts forever, but while seeking treatments and things to become more mobile and cope with chronic pain, I got back into drawing and photography. Another dream of mine was having my works on display in an art gallery and published but never thought that would happen, but thanks to Viviana and ArtTour International, those dreams have come true! I want to take advantage of my opportunities and do something positive to inspire others suffering from chronic pain or other obstacles in their life.”
