Pinkytoast is a painter, illustrator, and urban toy maker. She was born in Mexico and received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work has been described as perfectly quirky with the unique ability to combine innocent fantasy with a darkness and edge that makes her characters utterly one-of-a-kind. She has a soft spot for all things sweet and sour. Her work is influenced by retro kitsch, fairy tales, mod fashion, circus shows, the melancholy of goth and all things pink. Original paintings, dolls, and drawings are peppered with pinks, sour pouts, moon balloons, and flying bananas.
