About the Artist

Ai resides in Haines City, FL and has spent the majority of her life in Florida. She began illustrating as child and developed her skills through online tutorials and High School art classes. She spent time in the U.S. Army until 2017 and decided to pursue her art more seriously as a career option.  She still continues to work as a Laboratory Technician to supplement her dream of one day being able to pay the mortgage with her art alone. Hobbies outside of art include watching Criminal Minds, playing Pokemon Go, and hanging out with her 6 cats and dog.

Ailuros comes from the Greek name for the Egyptian cat Goddess, Bast. Since I was a kid, I’ve always had a love and fascination for cats. I thought it would be fitting to combine the two things I love the most. Cats and Creating.
