buddy. was born and raised in New Orleans, LA where they went to the New Orleans Center of Creative Arts, then attended the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida majoring in Illustration.
Most of their multi media work is created on broken skate board decks, but always aspires to never stop learning new ways to create artwork.
For the last decade, buddy. has been residing in Chicago.
When not creating art or working on tattoos, buddy. helped found Broad Squad.– a collective of femme identifying, trans & non-binary tattooers who coordinate art shows for local charities.
