- I am a fashion and portrait illustrator based in Michigan, USA. I like classical piano and champagne with breakfast. I love skulls and birds. Fireworks and sprinkles. Tulips and mornings. I'm attracted to anything white, Christmas lights, and palm trees.
My work revolves around fashion based portraits of women. I like taking a woman that has a certain look or attitude and adding elements to the piece to further exude her personality. I'm obsessed with beauty and physical perfection so I also want my pieces to be gorgeous and pleasing to look at, much like if you were actually looking at a beautiful woman in real life. I work only in pastel, which adds a softness to the women I am portraying. I've created my own style of rendering using pastels and layering them as i go. I combine realism with collaged design for a dramatic look, further emphasized by my tendency to work larger in scale. I love minimalist design, but also admire the skill that comes with portraying realistic objects, so I pay high attention to detail and authenticity when rendering. I am a perfectionist so my pieces must meet a certain level of personal quality.I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone and the way you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. The way you feel.
