Her story: I’ve been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. A few years ago I had no home, no money, and only a backpack full of belongings. During that time when I was unable to create artwork, I used any piece of scrap I could get my hands on to paint or doodle on. Art is a way of life for me, not just a hobby. Art has gotten me through so much in my life. I wouldn’t be here without it. 

Inspiration/motivation: My artwork comes from my thoughts, emotions, and the experiences I have been through.

The intersection of nails and fine art: Being a nail technician has definitely made me more detail-oriented with my art. I also love when anyone is willing to step outside the box when it comes to nail art.
