About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Arts
Occupation artist
Location Florida, United States
Introduction I am an artist/illustrator who loves creating unique pieces based on my love of color, design, interiors and mundane objects. I enjoy incorporating a lack of seriousness to express myself in order to create both realist and more abstract works. I am more interested in arriving at the end of my artistic process with a work that engenders a great vibe or visual experience than the method, materials, or explanation of how I got there. I am inspired by everything around me, my love for God, nature, books, travel, interiors publications and especially COLOR! My art experience includes book illustration for NYT best seller "Elements of Style", designing china for the retail market, and painting in a myriad of mediums. I started this blog in 2007 as a way to share my work and the work of other artists. I run an online store and create a wide variety of commissions for clients worldwide. My work was also featured on the set of the Nancy Meyers film "It's Complicated".
