<> I’ve always been drawing, but it wasn’t until college that I realized I was pretty effing good at it. I started off at Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota FL, bounced around to a few places, including Boston, and returned home to Rhode Island and graduated with a BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design (Class of ’05 with Evan). I took the Fine Art Painting route for a little while, showing my oil paintings at local galleries and doing commissioned work.  I didn’t actually get into tattooing until a few years after leaving school. I may have been a little late to the game, but I caught on pretty quick, and completed an apprenticeship. I learned a lot, but kind of went my own way with things; applying my painting and color technique and adding what some may call a softer, more feminine touch to my tattoos. I love realism, and very colorful subject matter, such as:  flowers, pin-ups, animals, etc.  Art Nouveau has recently been a huge influence on my work as well, and I tend to incorporate many of its elements in my work. I’m definitely a fan of soft realistic black and gray work, but my passion lies in color. I also enjoy pastry, candy, and baked goods (to paint , tattoo, and eat--its kind of my thing). Also, rollerskating and long walks on the beach at sunset…
