Hi, my name is Jerisa! I’m a visual artist, graphic/web designer and web developer based out of San Francisco.
Currently, I provide artwork and design services for a wide range of projects. This can be anything from ink illustrations for wallpaper designs, to watercolor paintings for ads, as well as web design for just about everyone from individual professionals to small/medium sized businesses. Got a crazy idea that you need to manifest? I’m just an email or phone call away!
Here’s a bit more about myself and Life Breeds Art:
My work is fully and wholly inspired by my upbringing. I was born in Guam and grew up in the Philippines and San Francisco’s Excelsior District. My culture and personal experiences blessed me with a unique perspective that I often take inspiration from and inject into my art. And although art undoubtedly flows through my veins (thanks to my dad), music rules my world (thanks to my mom). This is prevalent in a majority of my work as well.
Life Breeds Art
Right out of college, I used to paint a ton, curate art shows, create music, and design. To help funnel that creative energy, I began a few project brands in 2004 as I searched for my niche. Those brands later became Life Breeds Art™ in 2010, a creative lifestyle brand featuring my original art and designs on everything from prints, apparel, accessories to even house ware.
Life Breeds Art – Creative Studio
Also in 2010, after years of freelancing, I officially launched a small design company called Dela Cruz Design Studio. It steadily grew and I went from freelancer to full time designer and business owner. It was a blessing to work with some amazing clients on projects I never imagined being a part of and learning the ups and downs of running a small business. In the process, I was able to develop my career into something I could truly be proud of. Towards the end of 2017, I archived Dela Cruz Design Studio and created Life Breeds Art Creative Studio so I could focus on providing illustration and design services to a much wider range of projects and on a more creative level.
