  • Sweet Ichigo Art

Hello! My name is Abbi and I am 21 years old. Ive been drawing ever since I was able to pick up a pencil. I love making cute and bright art pieces but sometimes I prefer it on the dark side as well. I do both digital and traditional work. Some things that inspire me are japanese fashion, anime, cartoons, my pets, and video games.

My goal is to spread joy through what I create and make people smile.
