About Me

 

My first aura photo, taken June 2019.

Hi, I’m Pia

I am an artist, graphic/web designer, marketer and weirdo. I live and work in Los Angeles, CA.

I’m what you’d call a Jack of all trades, master of none kind of person in the art & design realm.

I do a little bit of everything that’s fun, creative and technical and believe it or not, I enjoy doing it all:

animated GIF creation
graphic design for print & web
simple motion graphics
print & digital marketing
social media marketing
web design/development

Why do I call myself weird?

I’ve been working in the adult entertainment industry for almost 10 years now. The truth is, I’ve been weird all my life.👽

I’m an only child, and mostly an introvert. I prefer listening to people instead of the one doing the talking. The subjects that interest me the most these days are of a spiritual, metaphysical, occult nature. Marketing, psychology, business and entrepreneurship also pique my interest.

I’m also into minerals, so much that I launched my own online crystal shop in 2017. While my intention was to create another source of income, I ended up learning more about myself than anything.

My interests in these areas have also led me to learning, practicing and receiving certifications in Reiki and Trans Crystal Therapy.

A little background

I started out as a Newspaper Production Artist in 1998, the training I received from my first job taught me to work fast and to be accurate. After that, I moved on to DVD/Bluray menu design and production work for a couple of entertainment companies.

I have also built websites for well known graffiti artists/muralists and tattoo shops from the LA area. Some of my clients included Man One, Vyal One, Crewest Gallery, Onizuka Tattoo and more. That was before CMS (Content Management Systems) like WordPress, WIX and Squarespace took over.

I learned how to build websites by experimenting with my first website ever. That was back in 2004. The old site (shermgrafik.com) is gone but forwards to my current website: savethesavages.com

I was a graffiti artist and my work came out in these books: Graffiti LA and Graffiti Women. I also showed my art at Crewest Gallery.

I think we have no choice but to constantly grow and evolve. Learning and doing a little bit of everything has kept me employed, thankfully.
