I'm Maritza: An illustrator that has a love for capturing little moments in life that make people smile.
I received my Bachelor's of Fine Art and Illustration at the American Academy of Art in 2006 and currently live in Chicago, IL. I enjoy doing portraiture in collage, recycled magazines, mainly dog art but people and kitties are welcomed too.
I also do watercolor, screen printing, story boarding, oil painting and graphic design work. Needless to say I like to problem solve creatively. I especially enjoy working with my hands and producing a truly unique artwork piece. Life is too short not to do what makes you happy. This is what makes me get up in the morning. Enjoy!
