A Shift In My Creative Career: Digital Illustration

As some of you may know, I have been spending a lot of time creating in a different way these days. It all started during the pandemic when I decided to treat myself to an Apple Pencil. Drawing has always been my first love and to revisit it in this digital medium has been a truly unexpected, therapeutic and an exhilarating experience. My focus now is to use this space to showcase my work, share my creative experience and learning with you.

Discovering the Digital Canvas

With just my iPad, Apple Pencil and online tutorials and courses, I have found myself immersed in a world where imagination knows no bounds with zero cleanup! Digital illustration provides me with the freedom to experiment with various techniques, colors, and styles while being completely mobile. I am primarily focused on sharing my perspective on what beauty and representation mean through unapologetically feminine illustrations in portraits and patterns.

Building a Portfolio and Licensing Wins

One of the most fulfilling aspects of my new and evolving digital illustration career has been collaborating with clients and bringing their visions to life. From magazine covers to home decor, I have had the privilege of working on diverse projects. I have been so very fortunate to be seen on wonderful magazine covers like Flow (see image above), as well as have my illustrations and patterns on products in Target, Erin Condren and Nordstrom. You can find a majority of my designs showcased prominently in my Society6 shop as well as on my Instagram profile.
