My most creative work usually comes about when I’m not thinking so much.
In her own words
I’m a midwestern girl with a love for nostalgia, stylish women, candy, and all things nautical. I do mixed media illustration and love to use cut paper, ink, stamps, glitter, and anything to give a handmade touch to my work.
Words of advice
Create a network—branch out and connect with others. Give advice, and you’ll get it too. Entertain all opportunities as well—never turn down the chance to visit a studio or meet people in your field. Usually golden opportunities pop up when you least expect. And most importantly, always be having FUN with your work! It should feel like play.
