Savanna started making art when she was 15 year old. She knew she wanted to dedicate herself fully to art and the craft of painting. By the fresh age of 18 she entered into the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts located in Portland, OR. She graduated in 2008 with a Bachelors in Fine Arts. Specializing in drawing and painting. Some of her own oil painted canvas are on display in her studio.
Continuing her education she was accepted into the Oregon School of Tattoo Arts, where she studied under the “Legendary Rio Degenero.” There she discovered a passion, more than drawing and painting, for the art of tattooing. Which combined her love of people, counter culture, and art.
After becoming a proud Molalla resident in October 2013 it seemed fated when Molalla opened its first tattoo shop in March 2014, Back40Tattoo. Having been opened for a month Savanna walked through the door and wowed us with her positive attitude. She instantly connected with the owner and staff; and was hired on the spot. She continues to impress us with her custom designs, skill, and passion for body art.
