First Born, 2020
Digital art

I am a graphics designer, illustrator, and digital artist.  I enjoy incorporating elements and symbolism from my cultural background into all of my art pieces. The year of 2020 has brought several hardships and blessings. My biggest blessing is experiencing motherhood for the first time. Amidst the pandemic, this has ultimately grounded me and given me new inspiration when it comes to creating artwork.

For this piece, First Born started from a vision and a sketch from years ago. I’ve always admired the journey of becoming a mother and the beautiful process. I have several pieces that incorporate the relationship that a mother holds. My message I want to convey within this piece is to honor “ina,” or matriarch, and the strength, beauty, and love each mother holds.
