Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself...
I’m a self taught artist who loves to paint all things pretty and feminine. Growing up I created art almost every day and was lucky to have a family who encouraged me to paint, and even color on the walls at a young age. While art was always my greatest love, it was put on the backburner when I moved from a small Northern California town to Hawaii to attend college at Hawaii Pacific University. There, I studied International Business and discovered my other great passion – traveling. While in school, I moved to Seville, Spain to study abroad for a year and traveled to 11 countries around Europe. I was so inspired by the architecture, scenery and beautiful people, I began painting again. It started with creating cards to send back to my family. Once I was back in Hawaii, my sister asked me to create a custom fashion inspired painting for her and I fell in love once again with creating. I draw inspiration from the latest fashion trends, vintage magazines, and my travels! I've taken my business on the road and now live out of my suitcase while illustrating my way across South America! I want to transport you to another place or time through my illustrations. Back in time to 1952's fashion scene through an illustration of a vintage Vogue cover or to Buenos Aires, Argentina's iconic Casa Rosada.
