Where were you born? Year, Country, State. Where do you live currently?

 

I was born in 1981 in Massachusetts and have traveled a bit before landing in my favorite city I now call home, San Francisco.

 

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?

 

I was a creative kid with supportive parents so I got to go to art school and do the "art thing" when I grew up.

 

Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding?

 

Um....Bart Simpson. The only time I stepped on a skateboard I nearly broke my neck... hahahah.

 

 

Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?

 

Give me some Buffmonster.

 

When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing?

 

I listen to a lot of music, go out and see bands, and take photos of graffiti and street art..

 

Who are your biggest influences?

 

No one in particular but graffiti culture in general.

 

What mediums do you enjoy working in?

 

I usually paint landscapes in oil but when I paint my "Cocky Girls" I use a lot of stencils and spray paint.
