~ MY STORY ~
Hello there! I’m a visual artist who draws and paints with the intention of uplifting others. Whether I’m drawing or painting women, designing surface patterns or creating hand-lettered fonts, my work comes from and sacred space that feeds me joy. I’m based in Los Angeles, California, where I live with my husband and two year old son.
I’d say my artistry is the result of being born with a creative spirit and growing up hanging out in my Grandparents home. I remember endlessly getting lost in the cultural art that surrounded me. This, paired with immersing myself into the world of art and illustration while attending Art Center College of Design, is what helped shape the visionary I am today.
My creative path has taken a few turns along the way. It began with exploring the gallery scene for the first few years of my career. When this path wasn’t flourishing as I had envisioned, I focused my energies into working as an artist for Trader Joe’s. In the eight years I spent there, I developed skillsets like designing chalkboards, murals and signage art and how to genuinely connect with others! All while creating my personal work at home on my free time.
Once I become a Mama, I decided to take a leap of faith and launched my creative business with the retirement fund I accrued from working at Trader Joe’s. These days I gratefully spend my time creating, sharing and selling my own work. I enjoy participating in art/ craft fairs, gallery shows and selling my prints and products in local boutiques around town. I also have my work in the Museum of Latin American Art gift shop in Long Beach, Ca.
My creative mission is to help, guide, protect, heal and inspire those that are connected to my imagery. For years I neglected putting my artwork “out there”, due to a lack of confidence. Ironically, the entire time I was seeking strength and inspiration through making art as my own source of medicine. Today, thanks to a multitude of life lessons and inner growth, I feel a commitment to sharing it with the universe.
~ MY CREATIONS ~
Here, you will see a blend of original drawings and paintings, giclée art prints and an assortment of art products. I cut and print each piece myself, using an EPSON Stylus Pro 3880 printer with incredible archival inks! I use 100% cotton, thick & textured fine art paper that produces the most vibrant colors! My products are locally custom printed and all made with archival materials. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or inquiries.
