ABOUT ME: I have loved creating artwork for as long as I can remember. I dedicated 4 years to seriously studying many art forms while earning my undergraduate degree, then specialized in studio art for 3 more years as I earned my graduate degree. I started collecting tattoos in college and fell in love with the art form. After college I taught art for several years, all the while still collecting tattoos on a regular basis. During my years in art education I learned two things: 1. I loved sharing art with people. 2. Simply teaching art is not my passion, creating art is. That’s when I realized I could take the love I already had for tattooing to accomplish both the creation and sharing of art with people. I have been tattooing professionally for over a year and have come to love and respect the craft even more, as well as its collectors. Although I appreciate and enjoy each style of tattooing, I have come to most enjoy Neo-Traditional blended with some realism.
