I have been making art since my earliest years of memory. As cheesy as it may sound, creating is more of a compulsion or obsession than it is a hobby.  Luckily I had the fortune of growing up in a family that constantly inspired and encouraged this aspect of my character. Although I tried pursuing art post high school – college just wasn’t for me. i found myself lacking direction, working in the film industry, craving a life of being in command of my own creative path, rather than carrying out someone else’s. When I finally discovered oil painting circa 2008 I felt compelled to make this my life’s work. After a few years of  sitting in front of the canvas 24/7 I had found a style, gravitating toward landscapes both real and imaginary. I love the freedom of oil painting as a means to explore the deepest reaches of our imagination and found that my reverence for nature fueled my mind with dark and illuminated visions of worlds just on the other side of the veil. Living in Los Angeles I spent a lot of time in group art shows, live painting and meeting more like-minded people.

In 2014, a long-time friend – and now fiancé – led my way into the tattoo world and an apprenticeship under the same mentor she had – Mike DeVries. I will always look to this moment as a life-changing opportunity and have coveted this fortunate career ever since.
