I have been doing art ever since I was a little dead girl. I was using my markers to make my Barbie dolls look "different" and entering coloring contest so I could win tickets to circus shows! When other little girls wanted to be ballerinas I wanted to be an artist...and Elvira :). I still do! I find beauty in all things dark, spooky or mythical. Aspects of that are reflected not only in my style but also in my artwork. I'm the type of girl that if Zombies attack I want to join em, not fight em. Some of my favorite things are horror movies, bats, Halloween, themed costume parties, Renaissance Faires, Muppets, Tattoos, shock rock, carnivals, freak shows, the circus, fairy and fantasy art, Universal Monsters and The Munsters. I like to draw, paint, scrapbook, craft and do anything that gets my creative blood flowing.
My biggest artistic inspiration is my father, Tom Birmingham who is not only an amazing artist but has always believed in me and my talent. Other artists that inspire me are Jim Henson, Tim Burton, Rob Zombie, Brian Froud, Dave Hartman, Cleve Hall, Eric Pigors and Chad Savage.
My artwork has won the 2nd Congressional Art Competition/Art Show, was featured at the Prairie State Truth and Fantasies Gallery Exhibit and displayed at the American Academy of Art Chicago. It has been talked about in newspapers, magazines and has been used for t-shirt designs, band merch, items for fundraising benefits, wall murals, etc.
