Forrest was born in New York City in 1992, but grew up in a small, lovely neighborhood in New Jersey. Having been born into a family of artists, Forrest’s creativity was nurtured at a very young age. His late grandfather, who was a painter and craftsman, taught him how to paint and inspired him to pursue his art professionally.
Forrest studied Illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan, NY where he fell in love with the city. After graduation, he moved to Brooklyn and has illustrated a children’s book and has been featured in Light Grey Art Lab’s “Tiny Homes” Showcase.
When he’s not busying himself with painting, Forrest enjoys reading, watching period dramas, and singing in the shower (perhaps a little too loudly).
