Hello, there! My name is Deborah Groves and am an illustrator who loves creating art to inspire others. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Studio Art from California State University San Bernardino, and am currently working as a freelance artist on video games, comics, and social media communities.
I love creating art with characters who usually get negatively stereotyped in all kinds of media, and my goal is to change that. Having grown up watching a lot of cartoons, I know how influential TV shows and its characters can be, so I want that little girl with brown skin and brown eyes look at a book or a video game and see a character who looks just like her succeeding in life and breaking stereotypes.
Along with art, I love talking to people, hanging with my friends and family, listening to R&B music, and creating fun, arts and crafts project for when I decide I want to cosplay as my favorite character, or create unique jewelry for loved ones.
