Latinx Designer, Illustrator & Educator
I am a Chicago-born Latinxer (I'm a proud Puerto Rican and Mexican American) millennial, an educator, and a freelance creative with experience in graphic design, digital media, illustration and surface pattern design. I am also a mother of two who is in on a mission to reach all the creative goals I've set for myself while trying my best to be a positive influence on the world.
I have 10+ years of experience in the fashion and creative marketing industry in both the corporate world and teaching as a professor in Higher Education. I am working on building course offerings that bring people a new perspective and opportunity to take your design and art to a new level. I am pushing for continued growth, running my indie studio, Bella+Sophia Creative, while also using my skills to help others interested in starting a career in the creative industries.
My hope is to inspire others through creativity and help you find your creative voice. I look to inspire others as much as I look to be inspired. I'm so excited to get to know all of you! The best place to learn about me and connect is by visiting my website, Bella + Sophia Creative. You can also follow along with my creative process over on Instagram and get a behind the scenes look on Youtube.
