Maritza Hernandez / illustrator and graphic designer

Hello! I'm an illustrator that loves creating unique custom portraits of people, dogs and cats. I occasionally I do some florals. I love a good challenge and enjoy watching my puzzles come to life.

I received my Bachelor's of Fine Art and Illustration at the American Academy of Art in 2006 and currently live in Chicago. My main medium is collage, all recycled magazines and some occasional fancy paper. Sometimes I use oils, acrylic or watercolor if the mood strikes me.

Needless to say I like to problem solve creatively. I especially enjoy working with my hands and creating personal art pieces. Life is too short not to do what makes you happy. This is what makes me get up in the morning. Enjoy!
