I have always loved art - sketching and painting in particular - and so decided in early 2015 to start an Instagram page to showcase little "fashion caricature illustrations" while living and working in New York City.

I am a big fan of illustration markers, and use these predominantly in my sketches; I will be playing around a bit with watercolour and oil paints in the near future! Below are my most frequently used art tools, all available at Blick Art Supplies:
