I have been an artist all my life. God granted me with a gift that I have been passionate about since I was able to put a crayon to paper.

Even though I have no formal education in Art, I have experimented with many mediums and have always pushed myself to accomplish any task put before me or to recreate any vision which was in my mind.

I spent a lot of years behind a tattoo machine, finding a way to be an active artist while making a good living at the same time. I prided myself on being able to work closely with my clients in developing designs that were meaningful as well as original. It gives me such joy to be able to produce something from my heart that brings such joy to someone else.

What could be more gentle than working with pregnant women. I am always excited at the prospect of creating such a special memento for new mothers which I know they will cherish forever.

The sky truly is the limit when it comes to creating your original masterpiece. I hope that you find inspiration in this website, and thank you very much for visiting.
