The universe revealed itself to me at the age of 26. Out of the sky God placed his mysterious box of art supplies in my path. No really, I was literally walking home from the store one morning and lo and behold someone leaves a box of art supplies laying on the sidewalk, no one around, I grabbed it. When I discovered the contents (paint brushes, watercolors, palette knives, art supplies, e.t.c.) I immediately took an interest in painting. Having had an interest in graffiti writing and drawing from childhood, I immediately embraced my new found painting supplies and took the experience in stride as if the box was placed there for a reason. The reason being the message I was supposed to receive from the cosmos about discovering the artist inside my soul. The rest isn't exactly history. Going through many obstacles life has to offer was what came next in my journey followed by the compelling urge to pick up a paintbrush again and start creating. In 2010 I had painted several canvas' and decided to try my luck at an art show. I remember leaving the show and having the desire to come back with better paintings. Ever since I've been vigorously putting the effort toward developing my skills as a painter. After submitting my work to Catapult Art Magazine last year, my work was featured in the May 2013 issue of the popular art mag.
My style can change from this to that. Meaning, as much as I love the healing arts and the earth changing spiritual principles of the world, I'm also just a girl in the world. Born in 1980, and graduating in 1998 put me in front of some sick diverse styles that I fell in love with each one and taking from each style and making it my own. For example...my style at times can look a bit dark or goth I should say. Well, that comes from my love for Tim Burton and his eccentric style. You will also see a lot of graffiti type of art style in my works and that came from being a teenager in the early 90's when tagging and graffiti were a way of life for some of my friends and I always enjoyed seeing a kids tag. A kids tag is something you can glance at and in a 3 second movement you see the risk they took, their style and it's all rolled into a 3 second passer by movement that I think is cool. I love the 1940's and 1970's decades full of unique fashion and style. The way women held their cigarette and the way the men dressed so sharp and suave. Not like today. I hope this helps you get to know me the artist.
The individual showcasing of each artist in such a personalized way.
Being able to do what I love to do.
