Artist – Surface And Textile Designer – About Me & Let’s Connect 😃
I am a self-employed artist specializing in textile and surface design based in the picturesque Florida Keys. Living amidst such natural beauty is truly inspiring! I am fortunate to be married to an exceptionally skilled mechanic and have raised a wonderful son who is now a father and a career firefighter/EMT.
From my earliest recollections, creativity has been integral to who I am. Being a Pisces perfectly aligns with my imaginative and dreamy nature. Throughout my life, I have explored various artistic avenues such as drawing, painting, photography, and crafting unique pieces like adorned shirts, jewelry, buttons, and sewn creations. Over the past two decades, I have honed my skills in Adobe Photoshop, using an iPad for digital art, and in recent years, I’ve eagerly embraced the world of Procreate and Adobe Illustrator.
While I have encountered numerous challenges along my journey, none have been as profound as the battle against cancer. I fought and triumphed over Lymphoma, facing both Stage IV and Stage II diagnoses and undergoing a stem cell transplant. Additionally, I have overcome thyroid cancer not once but twice. These experiences have only strengthened my resolve to pursue my passion as an artist, specializing in designing captivating surface patterns and graphics for a diverse range of products, including fabric, wallpaper, paper goods, home decor, and children’s items.
There is no greater joy for me than the opportunity to contribute to our world by infusing it with beauty and spreading happiness through my art. With every stroke of my hand and every intricately crafted design, I derive immense satisfaction, knowing I am making a positive impact. It is my heartfelt belief that art has the power to uplift and inspire, and I am honored to play a part in creating a more vibrant and joyous world
Before my artistic endeavors as a full-time self-employed artist, I held a demanding role as a network and computer technician/analyst. I dedicated myself to obtaining Information Technology degrees and certifications, acquiring a solid foundation in the field.
If you believe my artistic style aligns well with your project, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Together, we can collaborate and bring your vision to life. Imagination and creativity drive my illustrations and designs, and I am excited to share them with you.
