On Etsy since 2008

Latina/Choctaw Feminist Bisexual.

I was born and raised in West Texas, among cholas and sunny skies. Always quietly creating little books and pictures of cats and rainbows. My first commissions were drawings of unicorns for other third graders. Obsessed with 80's classics like The Care Bears and Rainbow Brite plus art history, I was always drawn to audacious colors with no regard for reality. One teacher said I would have been a fauvist. I currently reside in Portland, OR with my husband, one tiny pup, and heaps of plants.

I create acrylic paintings that evoke femininity through the use of fanciful colors and bold imagery. Conceiving of my own feminist pastel-colored Indigenous America rooted in oversized desert landscapes, cotton candy skies, myths & magic. I try to instill a spirited freedom in my art by often painting with my hands instead of brushes, and utilizing a laissez faire approach to contours of the land, sky, and wild creatures.
