My art is very approachable. I tend to keep my work playful and seductively impelling in hopes to make my audience become reacquainted with their genuine selves. My favorite mediums are watercolor, ink and gouache on paper. My style is loose and carefree. I pull inspiration from the sea trying to find depth and purpose in everything I create. I strongly believe with art anything is possible, even the possibility of creating global awareness and inspiring other artists.
My art journey began over 18 years ago while studying abroad in Paris, France. Currently, I create art everyday because it soothes my soul. At an early age, I attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City, Parsons School of Design in Paris and The Art Institute of Miami. In 2004 I received my B.F.A. from Ai Miami and began my career as a designer. My passion remained deeply routed in watercolor painting and the expression of the human figure. 3 years ago, my art was shown at The Fearless Artist gallery in Wynwood during Art Basel week in Miami, FL. In 2016, my art opened in a solo exhibit in Pembroke Pines, FL. In 2017, I was invited to join the Fearless Artist Gallery during Art Basel Miami. I have also been fortunate to collaborate with Bucketfeet. My hand painted illustrations titled, "Senses" were a featured design for the worldly known brand. Currently my designs are available through Threadless.com worldwide.
