Me in 3rd grade, apparently ready to create some alt music album cover art. I made this one with bleach-soaked yarn on black paper, and added pastel details.

I’m mostly self-taught (with the benefit of various workshops and one-off classes), but I do really enjoy drawing, painting and collage. I hope to eventually be able to illustrate one of my own books. (We’ll see! 🍀)
