Ariel is a San Francisco based illustrator who trained at Parsons School of Design in New York City.  Her illustrations focus primarily on pen and ink work, specializing in portraiture.  She has been freelancing for nearly a decade, having shows of her personal work whenever she can.  She finds inspiration everywhere, from the architectural lines of the urban landscape, the many faces in everyday life, to sticks, stones and other natural objects that she collects.  When she's not busy drawing, she's usually shopping at farmer's markets, cooking for her partner, or playing with her Boston Terriers, Harley and Levi.
