My love for art started at a young age. If anyone asked me what my favorite subject was in school, without thinking about it, I always said “art”. If I wasn’t in art class, I was always doodling on anything that I could find. I remember to this day, two of my favorite art teachers in high school telling me that I have a gift and they couldn’t wait to see what I did with it in the future.
I always had an interest in tattooing. I remember telling the people closest to me that it was my dream job, but at the time I really didn’t know how to go about it and was always told, “there’s no money in art”. I figured since culinary played a big part in my life, I would go that route and study baking and pastry and still have some art involved. I’ve been in the culinary industry for 15 years, and I enjoyed it, but tattooing was still something that I was always thinking about.
I remember the moment I realized that culinary wasn’t it for me anymore. It was fun and I met and worked with some great people, but it just wasn’t where I wanted to be anymore. Right from the culinary industry I landed a job in corporate. I met and worked with some of the greatest people there too but, I quickly found out that this wasn’t it for me either.
At one point, I really thought about it. I am a big believer that things happen for a reason and when the timing is right, it will happen. I have had a lot of opportunities that I am very thankful for, but it ended up not working out in the end and I took it as a sign and I followed my heart. With some encouragement from my family and best friends, I put myself and art out there.
I am finally making my dream a reality and I am so happy to be here.
