I'm an NYC-based artist, SVA graduate, popcorn gremlin, and lover of hair bows. My artistic loves include character design, illustration, and animation. I am currently enrolled in the MFA Visual Narrative masters program, to learn how to become a better storyteller!

I'm just a girl who loves to draw and tell stories. Cute fluffy ones, deep emotional ones, and grand fantastical ones.

I grew up watching Disney movies and to this day, they are still some of my favorite movies that I have no problem

re-watching for the billionth time. After my first experience with Kiki's Delivery Service in kindergarten, I decided

I was going to be an artist when I grew up, and so far I'm still going strong on that path. I'm a graphic designer but

my true passion lies in animation and storytelling.

My biggest dream is to have my own animated show where I can create an entire world and bring anyone who wants to come along for the ride. Much of my art is influenced by American pop culture, Japanese pop culture, Astrology, and mythology.
