When I started ASTRO. Illustration the thought of drawing and designing for a living filled my heart with excitement and curiosity for the unknown. With that being said, starting a creative business from scratch is much like entering the frontier of the wild wild west in the late 1800’s…you never know what you’ll run into next. And I gotta tell ya, I LOVE it! I love it when a client becomes more confident in their business and marketing strategy after working with me, and I love that others can be influenced by authentic art and design. And most of all I love being connected to other artist, designers and creative in my community.
I draw strong, professional, independant and sexually conscientious women to express my inner desires of femininity. Often times I feel that female empowerment means a woman has be masculine like a man. In my professional experience my own masculine traits such as strength, discipline and confidence have always been rewarded fiscally while my feminine traits of empathy, nurturing and patience reward me with relationships built on trust. Rather than rejecting femininity over masculinity in art I want to display in a balanced harmony.
