I always loved drawing when I was in grade school—I couldn’t get enough of art. I took up painting as a teenager and graduated from the magnet visual arts program at Dreyfoos School of the Arts, the premier arts magnet school in West Palm Beach FL. Afterwards, I attended FSU where I continued to paint while I earned a degree in Psychology, graduating with honors. Shortly after, I moved to Los Angeles where I met Kirk Alley, a world renowned tattoo artist and painter. That is where I began my apprenticeship as a tattoo artist. In the years since I have relocated to Seattle where I continue tattooing, and have added microblading and permanent makeup application to my craft.
