In a time of harsh polarization, I find comfort in connecting deeply with others and discovering the human elements that show how similar we all are deep down. My power lies in interpreting, connecting dots, and understanding the big picture. (I just happen to love drawing little ones.)

I am a journalism-educated storyteller and artist specializing in illustration, writing, interviews, and performance art. My work focuses on finding human connection, compassion, and growth through exploring desire, fear, vulnerability, honesty, trust, love, joy, gratitude, self-esteem and spirituality. I find inspiration in the exciting and uncomfortable rawness expressed by Shel Silverstein, Mari Andrew, Brené Brown, Cheryl Strayed, Marina Abramović, Elizabeth Gilbert, as well as many brave musicians (like these).

I can't wait to make art for you. Thank you for trusting me to do so and making my dreams come true in turn.
