I’m based in New York…and willing to travel!

I have an affinity for pineapples because it’s a tropical fruit that reminds me of sunshine and happiness, and I have island blood. They’re sweet and can be rough around the edges, like me. They’re divinely createdΒ (look up β€œpineapple Fibonacci sequence” and β€œpineapple fields” if you care to learn more)Β and the way they grow fascinates me.
I decided to make my pineapple neon because I’ve ALWAYS been attracted to neon. Neon can be obnoxious, and demand attention, just like me. I have a soft spot for anything that glows orΒ has a different appearance or effect under different conditions. I feel like my aura is neon.

For digital painting, I use my handy dandy iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.

I mainly use Procreate ($10) for both my photomanipulations and illustrations. Sometimes I’ll do finishing touches in Photoshop and/or Lightroom (on the Creative Cloud plan, about $20/mo). For vector-based projects, I use Vectornator ($free.99).

When I first started, I used Autodesk Sketchbook ($free.99). I still highly recommend it (especially if you’re on a budget and/or first starting out), but Procreate recently added some powerful features that have won me over.

You may notice a vinegar smell when unpacking your tee. This comes from the eco-friendly pre-treatment/fixation agent that is applied during the printing process to help the ink adhere to the fabric. Without it, the ink would flake off. Don’t worry, this is NOT permanent and comes out after the first wash!

That’s a great question…the honest answer is that I really don’t know. I’ve always had a knack for art. My love for it has grown as I’ve grown.
