Illustration is the start of my artistic timeline! When I first started college, I wanted to become an Illustrator. So when I started Graphic Design, I decided to use illustration as much as I could within the design field. Elements of illustration, digital or traditional, help my design process and final work.

Illustration has always been personal way of expression to me. It’s also a time marker for moments, attitudes, and my emotions in my life; It keeps track of my phases. I mostly draw female characters that I find to be empowering; most of these characters could be seen as portraits of my emotions. I almost always trademark these girls I draw with features I have as well; Adding these details for me is a way of accepting features and traits I personally and uniquely have, that I find to be my physical flaws. Illustration is my way of acceptance.
