Meet the Artist

I’ve been enlivened by and dedicated to creating art since I was a small child. The forest is my muse and I am inspired by folklore, plants, fungi, creatures, and the astonishing forms of humans. Spending the better part of my years silently observing nature has compelled me to appreciate and practice fluid compositions with an organic, melding quality.

The mediums have evolved and multiplied over the years but my main focus has always been the pursuit of meaningful expression with an attention to detail and vivid color. That combined with the thirst for a collaborative environment and a challenging yet rewarding career has helped me align with Haylo.

I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2015 and have been a freelance illustrator while finding my way into the tattooing community. I have now been apprenticing since February of 2022 and I couldn't be more thrilled to have found a team so passionate about sharing her talents, process, and knowledge in the name of giving people the richest tattoo experience possible. Working with others to make ideas and memories into lasting and personally valuable imagery is my dream come true.
