(sub)urban warrior is an artist working out of the burbs who has an urban vibe to her work. She is influenced greatly by street art as well as fine art masters, and she blends the two genres together, paying homage to each of them in her own way. She uses her fine art background and skill set to create her own set of characters, combining different animal and human anatomies together into new creatures she has named beasties. These beasties are nomadic and ancient beings who navigate cities, mountains, and plains sharing wisdom and spreading beauty. Currently they are her main focus, and she has been developing them and adding to their story. Color and line work are important aspects of her art. Bright colors draw the viewer in, and line work creates a natural ebb and flow to the images. There are often dual meanings imbedded in the work, and whimsy often melds with deeper thought processes. Being born and raised in the Midwest has added a decorative element to her work as well, honoring the kitsch aesthetic she has been surrounded by her whole life, but adding a twist to elevate those elements to something new entirely.
