About Red DuMonde

Red is originally from a small town in South Carolina. She grew up in a little house on a lake, and spent much of her childhood playing in the woods.

In college she was a painting and photography major, and was on track for life as an artist. But after university, life took some twists and turns. Many of Red's plans for art after University didn't work out. It was a dark time.

But Red didn't give up. She moved to NYC to find art opportunities. Even this big move didn't work out, but Red refused to give up her dreams.

Upon moving home, she reconnected with some friends and fell into a tattoo career. Finally, she was a full time artist. After 7 years of tattooing, Red found that she missed traditional art mediums and that leads us to now.

Today, you can find Red tattooing part time in Asheville, NC, and painting in her home studio in South Carolina's Dark Corner.

Through all of life's twists and turns, Red's love for plants and animals has remained a driving force in her art, and to this day her work is largely inspired by all manner of flora and fauna.

For fun, she enjoys hiking, rock climbing, rainy/foggy weather, reading, drinking coffee, baking, and gardening.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
