About

I have been drawing and painting since a very young age, ever since I learned that art was a way to make tangible the things we could never have in real life. I've always known I was going to be an artist; it's so much a part of me that even if it wasn't a career path, I'd still be drawing all the time.

I was born in Sacramento but grew up in Santa Fe and Nashville. I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a BFA in graphic design and illustration, and decided to return to Northern California. I now live in San Francisco, which is just an incredible city. I'm working at immersing myself more in the art community here in San Francisco.

I worked as an unpaid graphic design intern for a couple of places, but didn't manage to land a full time job. I currently work in childcare to pay the bills, and do my art on the side as a part-time freelancer…

I worked as an unpaid graphic design intern for a couple of places, but didn't manage to land a full time job. I currently work in childcare to pay the bills, and do my art on the side as a part-time freelancer. It's been 7 long years, but I'm still not giving up on having a career as an artist!

I've decided to revive my Etsy shop with one major goal: I want to save up enough money to support myself for a year. If I can do this, I'll be able to quit my day job and start doing my art full time.

I'm also always on the lookout for a graphic design position! ;)

I have dabbled in just about every method and medium that I can get my hands on, but I currently work almost exclusively in ink with digital color. I love to mix the traditional with the new - my work begins in pencil and ink on bristol paper, which I then scan and color in Photoshop.

I draw inspiration from many artists, but some of my favorites include Alphonse Mucha, Michael Whelan, John Jude Palencar, Thomas Canty, and Michael Parkes.
