My work is based on a lifelong love of lore, legends, myths, nature, science and history. My style reflects Traditional American tattooing and illustrations of times past.
I have been a professional tattooer for over 14 years, following a long career as an illustrator, graphic designer, and art director for various publishers in the US and abroad. Interpreting ideas into images has always been fascinating to me and helping a client bridge the gap between their personal narrative and an illustrated representation is probably one of the most rewarding uses of my experience as a visual artist.
When I'm not in the studio tattooing, researching, drawing and painting, I'm working on my small farm on the Potomac alongside my husband, happily making it a better place for our family and friends, dogs, cats, horses, chickens, sheep and our bearded dragon, Louis.
I look forward to the opportunity to help create something you'll wear for a lifetime and truly appreciate your interest in my work. Thank you for taking the time to view my online portfolio.
