Hi, I am a quirky US-based Illustrator who loves to paint empowered female characters in the Sci-fi and Fantasy genre. Usually, I like to do it at 4 a.m. with a bar of dark chocolate and a hot mug of jasmine tea! I have always been interested in gender dynamics but became especially aware of it over the last seven years that I spend abroad in the international city of Dubai, interacting with women from every culture on the globe. I am a big believer in painting what you believe, and I believe that the world needs diverse, strong, and imitable women in our movies, in our video games, and in our hearts.
I am a 2014 winner of the international L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future contest, am published in Writers of the Future Volume 30, and am featured in the May US issue of ImagineFX magazine. I am now working on a new art series that takes a fresh look at gender roles in classical mythology and how they affect to our modern society. It will be launched as a kickstarter campaign soon and then change the way the world thinks of women forever!
If you are in a silly mood, feel free to email me a funny selfie of you. I would be happy to send you back one of myself in return! I always love meeting people that way
