About Me

Greetings and welcome. I've been drawing and creating art since my early childhood. Over the years, many people told me I should be an artist. So I became a monk!

At the age of 21 I joined a Hindu monastery to lead an idealistic lifestyle. I lived and served there for over 16 years. That was a very rewarding period for me and has shaped me into the person I am today. Due to a series of sudden and unexpected events, I had to leave the monastery and start a new life. Pursuing a career as an artist was a natural decision.

Having been inspired by and saturated with the universal principles of spirituality for so many years, I seek to convey the same through my art. The primary intention behind my art is to inspire, educate, and promote higher thinking. In short, I seek to quicken the spirits of those who view my art. However, you'll also find me occasionally depicting topics of a more lighthearted and whimsical nature. I find this helpful in counterbalancing the more solemn aspects of reality.

I specialize in illustration, digital painting and comics but am always open to exploring new creative projects. If you have a creative project in mind please contact me so we can discuss the details personally.
