What I love about fashion illustration is that I can create stories where I am the author, stylist and set designer, and only imagination is the limit. In my drawings I always try to achieve simple and sophisticated compositions with the use of unusual color combinations, textures and pattern. My inspirations come from living in New York City and my love for design, from furniture to graphic to textile to fashion.
