ILLUMINATING THE PEOPLE, PLACES AND EVENTS THAT MAKE TUCSON EXTRAORDINARY
Art for Humble homes, Big Business
& Public Art
Having always loved drawing and creating fantastical images I learned at an early age that I could hussle my artwork for goods my parents wouldn't spring for; school lunches, a new magic set etc. As I got older, this love never faded and eventually I went to Parsons School of Design in New York City, and eventually opened my art and design business. Since then I have had the opportunity to work on incredibly exciting projects for large corporations and humble abodes.
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 and outsider art and love using portions of these images within my artwork.
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.
