Hi, I'm Ivy
I am a freelance illustrator and painter specializing in Live Fashion Illustration and my signature Animal Head-Human Body portraits.
I also paint a number of other subjects and can cater to most anything.
I grew up in Wisconsin and attended The Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia where I studied Fashion Design. My first clothing industry job was as a Technical Designer at Abercrombie and Fitch in Columbus, OH. It was hard to break out fo Technical design and into more creative design job opportunities. There was drive and motivation to do my job and to do it well, but for the job itself, not an ounce of passion. I now reside in Milwaukee, WI with my husband and two children and am living out my dream as a career artist. My work is inspired by color, pretty things, humor, the human form, fashion, costume, animals and my clients.
I love what I do now and I believe it shows through my work!
