 Originally from Miami, FL, Galbraith's work creates a mix of traditional and digital art, combining the textures of a hand-drawn line, with the bright colors and atmosphere of digital work. She uses unusual and interesting ways of combining traditional media with the computer, and her style is always changing. Having just moved from Baltimore, MD after getting her bachelors degree, she is currently creating and conceptualizing new artwork in her West New York apartment.

Galbraith is a big fan of color and shape, and uses these two elements as basis for all of her works. Her drawings often convey a strong emotive power, which are very distinct in each of the lines used to create each work. Her love of graphic design, urban vinyl toys, and Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls, come together in each powerfully expressionistic piece. Each drawing explores the creation of abstract dimensions – combining both 3d and 2d into one reality.

The artist also correlates a connection with the female figure in her work, relating to her experiences as a woman and with other females in her family. Coming from a family of independent women, she re-creates symbolic struggles relative to these people in her life. These interpretations show both the strengths and weaknesses of women, in different stages of their lives.
