About Me

I’ve been obsessed with drawing portraits from photographs, since I could hold a pencil. A few years back, I discovered illustrator, and ever since, my art has been almost entirely digital, using a drawing tablet and pen. I love the limitless possibilities in creating custom portraits, and the stories behind every creation – be it gift, memorial artwork, or modern art piece.

I created my Etsy shop — first and foremost — to support my two children (2 1/2 & 8 mos). I’m a WAHM and they love to watch me create! We have our own zoo, so my toddler esp loves whenever I get a pet order and oversees the whole process. He says he’s helping me make my ‘artwork’. I try to involve them both as much as possible, so they know how hard I work to support them and buy them things that they love.

I work in collaboration with two print shops in North America which specialize in the highest quality poster prints out there. I offer portraits in the famous styles of Warhol, Lichtenstein, Fairey, Scanner Darkly, Keck, and my own unique pop stylings. All art is available in a variety of sizes and print mediums – satin matte posters, gallery stretched canvas, fabric decals, and PDFS. I welcome all custom orders. If you can dream it up, I’ll create it. I regularly work with FB photos and instagram pictures as well.

I have a very fast turnaround time, which I pride myself on. First mock-ups are available in 24hrs. From there, I go through as many revisions as needed until the client loves their creation. We can try out different colors, styles, or even an entirely different photo, no extra charges. Once the work is ready, it’ll be available to ship within 2-3 business days (my print shops are just as fast as I am!)

I truly believe everyone should have meaningful, personal art work they love, that’s both affordable, beautiful, and entirely unique!

In addition to my shop, I’m also a published short story writer, novelist, creator of OMG Facts Puzzle Game for the ipad & editor-in-chief of State of Imagination an online literary magazine. Art is my passion!
