Bio / Statement:
I am an artist + illustrator based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 75% of the time I work while listening to Final Fantasy soundtracks. I am self-taught, but I’ve had a little help here and there.
I enjoy grungy ink line work and walks (of any length) on the beach. I would die for pizza and tacos but don't love taco pizza. My driving forces are pop culture, puns, mental health, and social justice / “norms.” Looking at my work, one might notice that I draw inspiration from the darkness in life. It all comes from a place of love, as I try to shine light on, and even make light of, that darkness when I can... which is really the best that any of us can do.
