Babes Ride Out Artist Series highlights the talented people in our community. Every artist donates their time and creativity to create a custom piece for the B.R.O. East Coast 4 Raffle. We are so happy to be able to support Moto F.A.M. through the proceeds of the raffle each year. Moto FAM raises funds for riders that have been involved in life changing motorcycle accidents.

Where are you from originally?
I am from Dallas, TX. Also lived in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania growing up.
Where do you live now?
In a neighborhood on the edge of Brooklyn, NY, called Midwood. It’s near Coney Island.
What first got you into art?
For as long as I can remember, I have been drawing, painting, creating. I’d say I started to pursue it more seriously after taking an art history class at university and switching my major from Pyschology to Advertising.
How would you describe your style?
Feminine and positive.
What inspires you? Have any artists in particular been an influence on you?
My favorite artists are ESPO (Steve Powers) & Jenny Holzer. Witty typography goes a long way with me. Also simple and clean lines. Swoon.
What is your favorite medium?
Favorite medium currently is leather paint on leather!
When did you first hear about Babes Ride Out?
On instagram. Maybe a year ago?
What is your connection to the motorcycle community?
I grew up riding all types of recreational vehicles which translated into motorcycles later on. I’ve traveled to different countries and have done a few day tours on rentals, but don’t have my own ride yet!
Do you ride? If so, what do you ride?
If you were a motorcycle what kind would you be?
A sweet and classic Triumph Bonneville.
What will you be contributing to this years raffle?
A hand painted Atwyld Jacket
Tell us about what inspired you to create it?
Inspired by the badass babes of BRO. Can’t wait to see who ends up with it.
