Biographical Portraits * Children's Books* Greeting Cards * Editorial * Licensing Art * Whimsical * Designer
Currently, I reside in the South Jersey/ Greater Philadelphia area; where I am always supported by my college sweetheart, best friend and husband, two major impressions -my sons, my Havapoo "Cori BOO" and an aquarium full of freshwater species. Every day, I make it an effort to leave a small impression of myself; whether in a smile or a design. We all have our own gifts in life and it gives me great joy to share mines with so many. I live by the motto, "for every challenge there is always a creative and joyful solution!" I'm an illustrator, graphic designer, wife, mother, sister, and so much more! Most of my life has been spent creating doodles, portraits, logos, you name it; I've designed it. For me, it all began in the city of Brooklyn, NY where I spent countless of hours coloring in coloring books and getting lost in my creative imagination.
In high school, I spent early mornings and late nights painting away, dreaming about the "possibilities". Eventually, I graduated with an
Arts and Crafts Honor and pursued an art education with a concentration in graphic design at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. Graduating with a BFA, I began to share my gift as a designer to countless businesses and large corporation creating logos, menus, business cards, and various other marketing materials for several years. After starting a family, there was a tugging on my heart; to illustrate. I began freelancing and creating custom caricatures and custom art for clients.
I use a combination of invigorating colors, whimsical, and realistic elements to my creations. I specialize in realistic biographical, portraits for children's books. I also create whimsical images with a combination of hand drawn, hand painted, and/or digitally painted techniques. And just recently, I've incorporated a new series of illustrations geared for children called "SoulKidZ". You can purchase and keep up with many of my creations on Etsy. SoulKidZ focuses on wall art for children. Soulglasses is a collection of hand painted art on glassware.
In the meantime, I continue to paint, draw, design and spend hours fine tuning my craft creating cheerful, soulful impressions for you. Feel free to contact me with commissions and or special projects, and don't forget to stop by often for new impressions being updated periodically.
To be soulful is to express great joy- Soulful Artist a joyful experience.
