I create art everyday because it soothes my soul. My art journey began over 18 years ago. I attended fine art institutes at an early age including 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 life drawing and the expression of the human figure. 3 years ago, I found myself reacquainted with my first passion, art. In 2015 my art was shown at The Fearless Artist gallery in Wynwood during Art Basel week in Miami. In 2016 my illustrations debuted on Ocean Goddess Apparel, a brand of beach wear exclusively for women. I have also been fortunate to collaborate with Bucketfeet. My hand painted illustrations titled, "Senses" are now a featured design for the worldly known brand.
My favorite mediums are ink, gouache and watercolor on paper. I tend to keep my work playful and seductively impelling in hopes to make my audience become reacquainted with their genuine selves. I strongly believe with art anything is possible, even the possibility of inspiring other artists. I hope you enjoy my collections. Keep in mind, custom framing is available on most items.
