It all started when...
I was trying to think of a gift idea for my best friend back in 2014. I wanted to paint her something and after I had finished my "masterpiece", I thought, "why don't I try selling stuff like this online?" Suddenly, I was shipping my art to people in places all over the United States.
My art collection has come a long way since then. In fact, my primary focus these days is on my neighborhood maps. I've always been fascinated by geography and I love to travel, but the best part about making maps is getting to learn about the many places that people hold near and dear to their hearts. Whether it's the city you grew up in, where you went to college, studied abroad, or that special place you visited with your family or a loved one - everyone knows a city they'll never forget. So why not turn that city into a piece of art, hang it in your living room, and give your friends something to talk about the next time they come over?
I'm 22 years old and I make all of my art in a small studio apartment. I'm originally from Minnesota, but I'm now based in the San Francisco Bay Area where I'm a Software Engineer by day and an Artist by night. I try to balance my technical lifestyle with my passion for creativity and design, and thus, we have Art by Aleisha!
