I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, and I’m currently tattooing at Tattooed Heart Studios, a private studio in Hanover, MD. I have always immersed myself in the arts, having attended art school from a young age. I graduated from Maryland Institute College of Art with my Bachelors in Fine Art in 2011, and received my Masters in Teaching in 2012.
After teaching art to middle school students for five years, I decided to further pursue my passion for art and tattoos. Tattoos have helped me embrace and love myself more fully, and I have found a great satisfaction in helping others discover or further their tattoo journey.
I am most inspired by nature, particularly animals and insects, as well as intricate pattern work. My current illustrative series, The Critter Project, marries these interests on wood panels. I’m excited to be making similar works for my tattoo clients.
Big thanks to my husband, family (pets included), and friends for their endless support of my happiness.
