Illustrator/painter/designer/craver of all things creative living and working out of Portland, OR (recently moved from NYC). Inspired by nature with hints of art nouveau elegance, I'm mostly driven towards developing characters and visual narratives. My love for hand drawn imagery is deeply rooted in dark inks and splashes of two dimensional color with a strong, bold and defined line foundation. I'm also currently dabbling in the world of herbalism/aromatherapy and have opened my own personal line that you can now also enjoy entitled "terrafauna apothecary" for all your other well being essentials. You can follow my progress on instagram @terrafauna_apothecary
