Self portrait then vs now


and I feel most aligned and alive when I am creating art. I am passionate about exploring, working in, and connecting through different mediums and forms including abstract paintings in acrylic and watercolor, photography and collage, brush lettering, and more--I am excited to see where my creativity leads me to next!

I believe art can heal, support, and help. A portion of proceeds from every piece I create is donated to non-profits and the important work they do. Learn more here.

I invite you to join me on this creative journey. Through my projects and corner of the internet, I hope to encourage and inspire the embracing and expression of creativity in our own unique ways!

Along with being an artist, I am also a dog mom to Valentine, vegan, aspiring minimalist, nephophile, ENFJ, Enneagram 7, one of those people who always has a million tabs open, and a very loyal Backstreet Boys fan (KTBSPA!). 

I'd love to stay in touch--sitting down to write Atiliay Notes to send to your inboxes is one of my favorite things and you can also find me on TikTok and Instagram.

Thank you for stopping by!

Stay inspired and keep creating 🖤
