Having always loved drawing and creating fantastical images I learned at an early age that I could hustle my artwork for goods my parents wouldn't spring for; school lunches, a new magic set, etc. At 18, I found my way to Parsons School of Design in New York City, loved every single moment, and finally opened my very own art and design biz. Since then I have had the opportunity to work on incredibly exciting projects from humble abodes to large corporations and public art.
My medium...Basically anything that will fit into my purse; a handful of thin black architectural pens and a sketchbook, sharpies, acrylic paint pens and my iPhone for impromptu photo shoots. I love adding layers of photography and digital color to my drawings and printing my final pieces of art onto metal, canvas, apparel, home goods...you name it! I call these creations, Portrait Stories. I am hugely inspired by murals, graffiti, folk, primitive and outsider art! Most of my artwork on exhibit is mixed media digital collages (layers of hand drawing, photography and digital color) printed on metal and other cool stuff.
Making art on my own terms requires "unlearning" many of the rules taught, pressured, and critiqued. I hope others, especially young artists will see that anything goes, art is experimental, and someone else's opinion is just that, an opinion not fact.
Forever grateful to all of those who have welcomed and inspired me in Tucson since 1998, I am committed to dedicating pieces and/or proceeds from exhibits to local Tucson non-profits. Check out the shows/exhibits page to see which charities will be the beneficiaries for upcoming sales and exhibits.
