GirlSpit created her name by combining the identity of a fictitious NYC Graffiti Artist (Spit) and the sexism within Graffiti Culture—combating Male Dominance with the addition of Girl.

The juxtaposition of the stereotype of sweetness, Girl.

Against the severity of an action, Spit.

GirlSpit created her own genre, melding both modern abstract and street art. With subject matter ranging from dark art, political, and her personal favorite – cartography.

Specifically, Urban Mapping of the Pacific Northwest.

GirlSpit completed formal training in various mediums:

Acrylic painting at age 7

Watercolors by age 10

Illustration and Graphic Design at a technical institute by age 16

Finally settling on the style of Stencil Art

Stencil Art is versatile medium, requiring:

Advanced Drawing

Precision Cutting

Controlled Spray Paint Techniques

GirlSpit never lets a Computer:

Cut A Stencil

Every piece is created by hand.

The most detailed and recent piece, a City of Seattle map, was completed in February of 2020. The 11-month project required over 250 hours to generate a 24” x 36” Map.
