You can call me JB

I was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, and I am currently studying at the University of Cincinnati as a Fine Art undergraduate student within the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. My work aims to explore the world that exists beyond our phones, TV's, and computer screens - a world in which possibilities are endless.

I grew up idolizing the characters I saw in movies, cartoons, and video games. I was (and still am) obsessed with the powerful women I saw in the media I consumed; their poise and glamour were so powerful in my eyes that I began seeking out ways of reflecting that in my own life. One day, a pencil and paper were placed before me, and my life was changed forever.

My style is whimsical and vibrant, incorporating a light sense of humor with the drama and glamour that has inspired me from the start. I'm a sucker for a good sparkle, and I always make my work with the intention to have fun and push myself as an artist.
