Who is paintdust

Residing in sunny Charleston, SC, Aly has been creating art since she was a kid. She illustrates fan art and original concepts that are often inspired by her favorite video games and anime characters. A few of her creative role models are Hayao Miyazaki, Naoko Takeuchi, and Rebecca Sugar. She decided at a young age to pursue a creative field and graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Graphic Communications. From there, she gained the skills in design, printing, packaging, and marketing she needed to make her dream of creating art for a living come true.

The goal of Paintdust to create things that make people happy. Glitter, childhood memories, and soft pastel palettes blend together to form an aesthetic that can be described as “art that looks the way nostalgia feels.”

Aly’s hope is to reignite that same inspiration within people around her so they can remember that growing up doesn't have to be boring.
