All I Ever Wanted To Be Was An Artist or a Hair Dresser
I am an artist, illustrator, and screen printer living and working out of Detroit, MI. I have been making art my whole life! Most of my work is either nature based, botanical or imaginative.
I am a founder and former owner of Ocelot Print Shop, a community screen printing shop and artist's collective in Detroit's Cass Corridor. Being a commercial screen printer for 7 years means I pulled a lot of squeegees and became a really good printer. In my time before having a baby I also worked as a beekeeper. At one point I tended over 30 hives and taught beekeeping classes in Detroit.
In addition to the prints in my shop I am also available for custom illustration work, wall drawing and prints. If you are interested in commissioning me to make some artwork for you send me a message.
All of my screen prints are made from original drawings of mine. Each one is a little unique, because they are all hand pulled by me. I am endlessly inspired by the world around me, especially my backyard eco-system. I use eco-friendly water based inks for paper and textile printing. All my prints are printed on French Paper, a Michigan based family owned paper mill that creates lovely papers. My towels are printed on 100% cotton towels that are also produced in Michigan by a small family owned business. I am committed to reducing my waste and reusing materials whenever possible, so you may occasionally receive a package you ordered from me in an upcycled box or package.
