A typical cuban-american miami girl, drawing and celebrating femmes in new york city.

I left Miami at 18 to pursue my dream of becoming an illustrator.  In 2015 I graduated from School of Visual Arts with a BA in Illustration. While in school I was mentored by my personal heroes, Chris Buzelli and Yuko Shimizu. In 2017, I partnered with comedic writer, Dan Fox, to create a children's book called "Hey Zoey! Get Off Your Phone!".  A passion project that aims to teach digitally-native kids that friendship is more important than their devices. I continue to live in New York (despite the cold and lack of pastelitos de guayaba) as a strong, independent freelance graphic designer and illustrator.

Best advice I ever got :
"Be honest about the work you want to do. Work hard to put it out there – even if you don’t think you’re ready. "

"The way you breathe, is the way you live."
