Hello minions,


People have been asking me forever to post some videos of my work. So, I finally got around to it and joined the civilized modern society by starting a YouTube channel:


Not much on there right now, but I've got plans to add a lot more vids.

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art

Hi there, and welcome to my gallery! I'm a self-taught artist/illustrator, and I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I've been doing art professionally for about 12 years.

Many things have inspired and influenced my work, from the Far East to the Pre-Raphaelites to post-apocalyptic and steampunk fiction. I love to blend fantastic and real life elements. My work is mostly traditional, but I also do some digital art here and there. I'm a creativity junkie and can't live without making things and experimenting.

I believe we creative people are never truly complete, and continue learning and discovering ourselves for as long as we live. It's like a pilgrimage to our muses, and I'm enjoying mine for all it's worth, cracks in the road and all. I don't really care about pushing the envelope or being a visionary, I just like to paint pretty things that I hope will bring people joy.

I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, our two young sons, a trusty feline sidekick, and more books and movies than we have room for. When I'm not appeasing that finicky, fickle art muse, I hang out with my family, write novels I hope to someday publish, dabble in photography, and play a delicious profusion of violent videogames.

Thanks for looking, and alons-y!
