About | I was born in Lima, Peru, and adopted as a baby by my mom, Donna (Hi mom!), when I was 4 months old. I grew up and was raised in Cincinnati by my mom and Aunt Diane, who are two of the most generous and energetic twins you’ll ever meet. I was also raised by my grandparents, John and Ethel who, along with the twins have help shape me, teaching me, among so many things, the virtues of self reliance and my own inner strength. My interests growing up revolved around creativity and religion and, as my interests adjusted and evolved, food and nutrition would become one of my other integral passions. It would be later, that I was exposed to many areas of spirituality that took me to where my heart was craving to be and inspired me to create with the goal to connect with myself and others spiritually. I would learn that I could become my own advocate on my creative and spiritual path.
I attended SCAD in Savannah, Georgia. I graduated with a degree in Illustration while also having an equally intense enthusiasm for holistic wellness and dreamt of one day creating art that encouraged others on their healing journeys while at the same time, nurturing my own healing experience in a creative way. I am inspired by communities, organizations, businesses, publications, and people that communicate and use their energy to enrich creativity, adventure, open mindedness and wellbeing in order to guide and heal our larger community.
I was drawn and moved to Brooklyn after school with an eagerness for more experiences. The electricity here, NYC is like a permanent full moon. It implicitly asks you to bring your best, most alive self and engage with the moment.
Since then, my path has led me to holistic wellness, spirituality and open creative expression. My illustrations are bright and colorful, an exploration of healing, imagination, the potential of energy and the power of consciousness. I embrace my ethnicity which you see carried out in my aesthetic through my use of vibrant colors and patterns. I hope my work evokes happiness, the celebration of life and a sense of familiarity that will inspire and connect us all on our spiritual paths, whatever we may be in life.
