Thank you so much everyone who took the time to wish me a Happy Birthday! It means a lot! 

Not a lot of news to report on, I admit I haven't been coming to DA as much as I should, but I do appreciate all the likes, comments and watches. You guys rock!

This weekend I'll be participating in 100th Sketchfest:… I haven't been a member since the beginning, but it's been a few years that I've been a part of it, and it's such a great creative outlet. This event is your chance to win some great prizes from a number of artists. You don't have to be an artist to participate - you can give prompts or comment. I'll be offering a print of my colored pencil piece "Esoteric" with a matching magnet.

For coloring enthusiasts, I'm now offering coloring pages at my Etsy store:

I do update my other social media more frequently than DA, so feel free to follow me on:

Hi there, and welcome to my gallery! I'm a self-taught artist/illustrator. I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, and have been doing art professionally for about 15 years. My work is mostly traditional portraiture with fantasy elements. 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. I love to write, take photos, cook, ride horses, and play a delicious profusion of violent videogames. If you want to know more, please visit my site at

Thanks for looking, and alons-y!
