I am a young stencil/street artist by the name of AWOL (Artist With Out Limits). I have drawn stencil art for seven years. Ink drawings and tribal designs led me to my interest in stencil art. As a self taught artist I feel I have grown in my skills through observation and study of many great artists. Some of my greatest influences come from stencil artists such as Blek Le Rat, C215, and Banksy.
Markers and spray paint are my favorite mediums. I'm always striving to improve by varying my style from loose free flowing, texture and to detailed work.
My inspiration comes from seeing people of all ages chase their dreams, no matter how big. Their passion and drive reminds me that nothing is impossible... and there are NO LIMITS.
~~~~~WHAT DOES AWOL STAND FOR?~~~~~

They ask me why I go by AWOL (A.rtist W.ith O.ut L.imits)... It's because I believe my goal is to show people that age is just a number. You're never too old or young to follow your dreams and inspire. There are NO limits. Dream big... No, Bigger!
The purpose of Society was to take individual life stories from everyday people and turn them into pieces of art. It allowed people to tell stories through something as simple as a portrait.
Society spread to hundreds of places such as Australia, California,
Florida, New Mexico, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy etc. AWOL spent a year
collecting photos, and painting portraits. At the end of her global epiphany she
painted nearly 200 pictures from people world wide.
~~~~~FROM STENCILS TO STREET ART~~~~~
She began her street art career when she was only 13 years old in 2009, slapping decorated postal stickers on local mailboxes. In 2011, at age 15, she went global with her work, exhibiting work in Australia as a finalist in the stencil art competition.
AWOL has come a long way from just slapping her name around. She is gaining notoriety world wide. In September of 2012 she painted a mural for EDGE Gallery and the following year flew to Miami to pain in the largest street art festival (Miami Art Basel)
