It’s Me, Aurora!

Do you have a secret stash of vintage Sassy magazines tucked under your princess canopy bed?  Does that episode of My So-Called Life where Rayanne Graff goes to the hospital get you every. single. time? Are you a riot grrrl? An urban princess? A ‘zine fiend? A karaoke virtuoso? A tear-stained prom ticket, in the shape of a girl?

I like you already. Let’s make art together.


Very Important Facts

I draw portraits of gorgeous people like you—plus couples, families, beloved pets & BFFs.

♡ I make posters for indie bands & bawdy performers—like Sound and Vision FoundationDuck Egg TheatreThurston MooreXIU XIUQuasi & Nerf Herder.

♡ I do commissioned projects (like miniature murals, jean jacket pins, collectible postcards & custom t-shirt designs) for fellow girl pop visionaries—and folks who ask nicely.

♡ And once a month, I lead Live Drawing Classes for Radical ‘Teens (& their ‘Rents) in Pasadena, Ca. It’s a bonding experience for moms & sons, dads & daughters. With inky watercolors. And shredded high school scrapbooks. And music that rocks, across the generations. You should probably buy a ticket.


Fancy-Schmancy Resume Gold

♡ I hold a BA in Fine Arts*, and a PhD in thrift shop treasure-hunting**.

♡ I was an artist-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts and Sciences, where I discovered the indescribable joy of having my very own painting studio, and interns at my disposal. Tres luxe.

♡ I do solo shows & group exhibitions around Los Angeles and Long Beach every season or so, and sell prints & original pieces in my swoon-worthy Shop.

♡ I’ve been highlighted online (& in print) at Indiemade, The LA Record, The Brooklyn Review, The Fresno Bee, Fresno Famous, LAist, Agent Lover, Apocalypstick, Unicorns For Socialism & Vianza. One writer described my work as “whimsical, yet sweetly erotic” and full of “loopy glee.” And they say journalism is dead!

All You Really Need To Know

I’m here to make your dreams come true—whether it’s a portrait of you & your Boy Band crush, locked in a slow dance… or a faux-band poster, starring you & your three best friends… or a pocket-sized painting of your superhero alter-ego, saving the world from Walmart. Art makes anything possible.

Want to send me a love note, book a portrait session, or pitch a project of heart-wrenching proportions? G’head—proposition me.
