I’d always been interested in art and took up drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil. By the time I graduated high school I had already taken two college courses on illustration with portfolios sent to my ideal art college, Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida(my home town). After graduating, I was accepted to Ringling and went from there. By the age of 22 I had moved to Fort Wayne and finally got to get my first tattoo. After that, it was all uphill from there. I became addicted to the art, how it was done, and the dedication that so many put into it. After having my Daughter at 24 and then a lot of trial and error, by 27 I was accepted into an apprenticeship and became another member of the tattoo addiction and dedication.
