I make prints as an imprint of myself. While many artists prefer people keep them and their work separate, the best way to know me as a human is to know my art. I use my prints to journal, communicate, and occasionally have a mental breakdown.
I use comics because I am interested in they type of flattened space that occurs with text and bubbles, because I want to compartmentalize my experiences, because sometimes a single frame is not enough, and because they are the purest form of visual narrative.
My work is silly, sad, easy to read, relatable, and honest. My work is me.
