I've loved art from the moment I could hold a pencil.
My passion for visual art was truly realized in college, during my Couture Fashion Illustration courses. However, I never quite felt I reached my full potential. After graduating with a BFA in Fashion Design in the midst of a recession, I had very little luck finding work. Feeling defeated, I focused on just surviving... but the call of art was too strong.
Little by little I put pencil and marker to paper again, eventually progressing to Watercolor, Acrylics, Inks, and even Digital Mediums.
I had found my passion again and now I create without limitations!
As a Mixed Media Artist & Illustrator, I am primarily inspired by *Culturally influenced mythologies, *Urban arts, graffiti, and comic books, as well as *Art Nouveau aesthetics. I enjoy combining organic shapes, colors, and textures to create captivating line art. My love of nature and the female form is brought to life using a combination of my formal training and self-taught skills.
Historic trail blazers such as Alphonse Mucha and Erte; along with modern artists like Chris Sanders & Jake Parker are just a few of my many artistic influences. Forever the student of life and art, I constantly strive to improve my craft and discover new ways of bringing my world to art lovers everywhere.
As an Artistic Professional my ultimate goal is to create larger representation for new and emerging artists. In doing so, I believe we can make our art more accessible & send a greater message of hope out to the general public.
