`I have always been a supporter of the LGBTQ+ community, even though I'm not actually apart of it. Even as an unaware child, I didn't understand why some people had a problem with others loving who they wanted. I think there's something extremely beautiful about a romantic relationship, no matter who it's with. It SHOULDN'T matter who you choose to be with, and I want people to know that. I want to show people that there is nothing weird or wrong about two men loving each other, or two women loving each other. And I want people to understand that beauty can be found within any relationship.
I'm a painting major at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, minoring in illustration. Growing up as a kid, I've always had a strong adoration for art and the process of creating it. It wasn't until halfway through my freshman year of high school that I really found myself getting into it, and wanting to make a career out of it. It hasn't been long, but since then I have dabbled in multiple different mediums, some that I hadn't even heard of as a kid, and found that, although it's fun to use different mediums, my heart lies with paint, specifically oil and acrylic.
