Hi there! I'm a 32 year old disabled Graphic Artist/Illustrator/Designer from Puerto Rico currently living in the Indianapolis Metro Area after adventuring in the San Francisco Bay Area for about 3 years. I create handmade jewelry using origami components and Kanzashi-inspired hair accessories. I also enjoy making cute designs for t-shirts, binders and other products. I have a Bachelor of Art's Degree in Graphic Arts.

My usual mediums are: Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator, Wacom Graphire (I just got an Intous 5!) tablet, Oil-based Markers, Watercolors, and Pen and Ink.

My twin sister is an oil painter and also has a gallery here.

Due to life circumstances, I unfortunately have become disabled and have not been able to work on artwork as a living, and only very rarely as a hobby. You can follow my adventures with my service dog, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, on her Instagram and Facebook, if you're wondering what I'm up to as of now!

Hi! I love your paper jewels!
I tried to do paper jewels printed on sandwich paper.. but it was a failure!
