About my work

Recurring themes in my work are self-care, love, and improvement–often visualized with human characters and personal objects, though I love exploring all kinds of subjects. I mostly enjoy creating drawings in the medium of pen and ink (on paper) or seeking digital lines that hold a similar, hand-made tangibility.

My capabilities include apparel design, book illustration, brand explorations, conceptual artwork, content pieces, editorial illustration, hand-made drawings, iconography, illustrative branding, line art, live/event drawing, pen and ink, spot illustrations, style frames and vector art.
