I am a comic arts major at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. I graduated from West High School in 2017. My work has been featured in Little Village and The Daily Iowan. I like to capture history, politics and ordinary life in comic form. I have printed my work as cards, postcards, zines, buttons and stickers.

Most of my work is inspired by media; anime, tv-shows, and more. When I am not drawing that, I love to explore the idea of fantasy and realism. I want to become a medical illustrator so I draw a lot of human anatomy, sometimes with a twist. Overall, my work is a mix of a lot of ideas.

I try to capture the beauty of the natural landscapes around Iowa and places I have traveled in the past in my paintings and I am particularly drawn to sunsets. I have tried several different styles and mediums of paint but I mainly work in acrylics. My other passion is in ceramics and although I mostly throw on the pottery wheel, I have been experimenting with handbuilt animals and structures lately. I also delve into drawing and create images of animals using ink pens and occasionally colored pencils.

My artwork can be described as gothic folk art with pops of color. I’m stilling exploring my style and medias but really like to use neon colors mixed with dull darker colors.

I do pen and ink drawings using micro pens. Some drawings are colored using colored inks. I also create felted wool paintings and sculptures using wool slivers and batts. Barbed needles are used to felt wool on to a background fabric or to shape fibers in to solid wool sculptures.
The art I create is mainly colored pencil. Techniques used are layering pigment, blending, burnishing and sgraffito. My designs are the result of observation of nature- capturing a moment in time.
