Future Goals

I want to be able to work as an illustrator full time!

Longest amount of time you’ve worked on a single project?

Covid made one of my projects extend over a year.

Best Moment of VCD

Sitting in the undergrad studio with the windows open, we were in a study group, and a hawk landed right outside the window and tried to get in. He wanted a college education as well and I support him so much.

Worst Moment of VCD

The rectangle project made me question my sanity and also how my hands could possibly be so shaky.

What inspires you?

Spring gardens, storms, tiny corner shops, wood type, dark greens.

Best advice you’ve been given

Know when a project is good enough to turn in.

What’s one thing you can’t live without?

Our very expensive macbooks I get separation anxiety just being too far away from it like what if something happens to it.
