About Me

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, create what you will.” -George Bernard Shaw

Hi, thanks for stopping by my little corner of the Internet. I’m a freelance illustrator based out of Northern California.

Ever since I can remember, drawing has been a creative outlet for visualizing my cravings, goals, and aspirations. My childhood sketchbooks are filled with clothes that I saw others wearing, but fancied for myself. I even drew clothes of my own design. Illustration has, and continues to be, a method by which I bring all of my sublime cravings a little closer to reality. One of the greatest joys of illustrating professionally comes from collaborating with clients to create pieces that are a vibrant expression of their desires–whether they be elegant, playful, sensuous, or cerebral.

Aside from illustration, I adore spending time with my son, who is a yet to be discovered comedian, and my husband, who has the most infectious laugh in the world. I enjoy taking long walks with my dog, who is the most macho shih tzu you’d ever meet. Aside from walking my dog, I spend my free time gorging on fashion magazines, practicing yoga, binge watching anime, and playing video games.

Contact me at mikayla@sublimecravings.com if you are interested in discussing a project, or just to say hello.

If you like what you see here, I don’t mind sharing my work.  The idea of someone reposting my illustrations is extremely flattering.  All that I ask is that you give me credit for my work.
