started tattooing in February of 1992
and after working at a few different places in Pennsylvania
and here on Long Island, she joined us here at Inkpulsive
in June 2009.
the beginning, she was looking for something productive
to do with her art but being a free spirit, didn't
want to go into a (confining) commercial
art field. The opportunity presented itself through a
friend and she just went with the flow. She had what most
would consider a rocky beginning and feels very fortunate
to have gotten as far as she has.
enjoys the freedom to be able to create
without boundary or limitation of logic. She
has fun with her art and feels that it shows in the work
she does. She is constantly working to improve her art
and tends to be her own worst critic, but believes that
it keeps her moving forward creatively. Among her most
loved artists and earliest influences are Boris Vallejo,
Brian Froud & Wendy Pini. After gaining access to
the internet, she was able to view the work of countless
artists who have continued to inspire her.
thrives on freedom of expression and is able
to capture most ideas and concepts easily.
Her least favorite things to work with are designs without
flow or depth (of meaning as well as sight)... She concentrates
her energy more on fantasy art designs, intricate and
flowing, rather than rigid objects such as bio-mechanical
and technical drawings. Because of this, she tends to
'take over' whole body parts to adapt the flow of the
piece to the body (placement and flow is everything).
She dislikes doing the same thing over and over.
favorite subjects to work with are fantasy, faeries and
freeflowing art... pieces that compliment the
body and soul. Art with feeling and meaning is more likely
to inspire her. She prefers to work with color
but is willing to admit that some pieces may look better
in black and grey. Her personal art style tends to be
elegant, detailed, swirly and fun. Stacey enjoys doing
custom work but is capable of working with almost any
reference material a client may provide. She also finds
covering and/or refurbishing old work to be a challenge...
works well with clients who keep an open mind...
those who have faith in her abilities and those who don't
stifle her creativity. (As well as those who don't mind
giving up a body part or two...)
