Is a Southern California based gunmonkey, with an affinity for pop art and firearms. Widely considered the first guerrilla girl, she has shaped modern society with her high profile paintings and culturally significant kills. Her life as an assassin began at the age of nine when she dropped out of parochial classes and picked up a revolver. The lucrative kill contracts she carried out allowed her to follow her true passions, painting and poetry … and so, Gunmonkey Art was born.
