Hi I’m Fronkie! I’m an artist, mommy, nerd, health nut, counselor, and cheerleader at heart. Not the kind with the blonde, swinging ponytail. Just the kind that lives to make sure people are having a good time and living up to their full potential. I’ve been drawing habitually and obsessively since I could hold a crayon, and I’m always growing- sometimes at a snail’s pace, and sometimes by leaps and bounds. I started tattooing in April of 2005 in Tallahassee, FL. In the fall of 2012, I moved to southern Maryland, and after taking some time out to welcome my first child to the world, started working at the best shop for which I’ve ever had the pleasure, King of the Bay Tattoos.
With the help of some really inspiring people, I turned a new leaf in my perspective, discipline, and motivation. The publication of this website marks the beginning of a new surge in inspiration, a new brand of muse- dedication. Focus.
In 2015, I felt called to leave the tattoo industry and pursue my childhood dream of becoming an illustrator. After taking another break to have my second daughter, I returned to school at the community college and began looking around the country for the perfect illustration BFA program.
Within this website you can find my portfolio, and perhaps some stories or musings of my own. Whoever you are, thanks for looking, and I wish you a fantastic journey.
