Hi, I’m Phephe!

I have to admit, I have an addiction to creating. I fell in love with the creative arts for as long as I can remember. 

In 2009 I started selling art online, which was the beginning of building my personal brand. I picked up how to position myself as “the creative person they knew” to get referral work time and time again.

With sales and marketing training, I built two businesses to utilize my talents to serve others.

Now, my mission is to inspire other creatives to follow their passions.

I CAN EXPLAIN…

As I said, I love to create, and there’s a valid explanation of why I do what I do.

Illustration

My first love was drawing. I was a Visual Art major with SCPA at Chula Vista HS. I’ve continued to work on my craft through self-teaching and online learning.

I’m an active member of SCBWI and a past student of Children’s Academy and a current student of Storyteller Academy.

Interiors & Architectural Drafting

My second love became architecture. I earned my Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Southern California in 2009.

I’ve worked for A-K-A Architecture. I currently run a boutique design practice, Brush Up Your Space for select clientele and service Real Estate investors/PMs for architectural drafting and marketing floor plans.

Branding Personal Brands

As a result of my first two loves, a third was created. After building a personal brand for over 10 years, I now brand creatives, experts, and influencers.

Brush Up Your Brand™ offers full branding packages, as well as, graphic design services.
