About Me

Im a Baltimore born and raised artist who has the pleasure of 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 left the classroom behind 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 plants, animals, and insects, as well as intricate pattern work. My illustrative style of tattooing marries these interests. I’m excited by projects that include dot work and bold color and play with daring contemporary placements on the body. 

Big thanks to my husband, family (pets included), and friends for their endless support of my happiness.
