Thank you all so much for taking the time to learn a bit about me. As well as supporting me and my art!
You're the best!
A little about me. I am the proud daughter of Cuban immigrants. I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. I feel lucky to have grown up in a city filled with my culture as well as a multitude of others. Growing up I didn't see it that way. I was embarrassed. Being a first generation American was confusing but the older I got the more I realized what a blessing it was.
I hope to bring some of my experiences into my art and stories.
I'm a mom to a super funny boy. He's the reason I push myself every day! He and his dad are my favorite people in the world. Well, them and my parents. They're pretty amazing too!
I'm a self taught artist. I love drawing cartoon portraits of people. I also love creating vector files and all sorts of clip art and such. I started making them for myself years ago when I got my first silhouette machine.
My dream is to be a children's book illustrator and author.
I can usually be found slumped on the couch drawing, drinking coffee or cracking jokes with my little family. Some of my favorite things other than what I've already mentioned are; pizza, photography, and garlic (mmmm garlic).
That's all I can think of right now, talking about myself is hard. If I think of anything else I'll add it some other time.
Thank you so much again for your support!
