What inspires you?

I take inspiration from my own lived experiences. My illustrations often center on the feminine form – but not just a singular kind of beauty. I like to explore themes of leisure, indulgence and comfort – to send out positive vibes!

🔮


What do you do to unwind from a stressful day?

Take the hottest bath possible!

💖

How would your utopian future world look like?

Healthy people, living sustainably with nice bath tubs and cheese plates for everyone

😊

Who is your role model / hero? Who do you look up to?

There are many established artists I look up to, but I am most inspired by my contemporaries. For example, my sister is running her own theatre company in Toronto (Bad Hats Theatre Co). She works so hard and is finding success in a difficult field while doing what she is most passionate about. I have a lot of respect for her hustle.

💁‍♀️

What do you see as your biggest challenge?

Getting started. Sometimes it is hard to find the motivation to start working, but as soon as I get going, I remember why I love making things.
