What do you love most about your art?
It gives me an avenue to create and have fun... that's a great feeling!
When did you start designing/illustrating and creating amazing artwork, and how?
I started around three years ago I think. My boyfriend found my sketchbook and pushed me to pursue it, bless him! I wouldn't have done any of this without him.
Favourite collaboration you’ve worked on?
Hm... Thats tricky! I was recently commissioned to draw portraits of a band I happen to be obsessed with, The Internet. That was exciting, and I was really happy with the finished products!
