How she got the job: “I have drawn and painted my entire life, and in 2008 I took the big leap and went full time. I began showing fine art at art festivals and developing feedback on my style and imagery. I painted my first urban art mural in 2011 with two other artists, Persue and Monstrinho, who were invited after a group show. Soon thereafter, I joined Few and Far Crew and began collaborating on many more walls and meeting and collaborating with other artists. Painting murals has offered me the opportunity to travel, experience a wide gamut of cultural experiences, and ultimately to develop the craft of painting urban art and building a reputation within San Diego. I have gained recognition for my style, and for the emotion presented in the eyes I paint. My style is often described as 'unique, yet very recognizable,' and argued to be like the very fingerprint of novelty itself.”
What she does: “I paints fine art, murals, builds installation art, and graphic design and illustration. My urban art style was developed through sketching and painting on canvas. My murals are often based around the geometries of a face, with lines and patterns borrowed from the natural world -- elements of flowing water and sublime vegetation suggest an abundance of growing, healing, and evolving life. Using a combination of roller, brush, and can, I typically spend several days painting a single mural, adding elements as layers of development through the process. I never know for sure what I’ll paint until faced with the wall of the day with paint in hand."
