What inspired you to create this series of work?
I have always been inspired by many illustrators and finally decided to create some illustrated projects of my own. I wanted to create fun, colorful items that made me happy!

In what ways have you benefited from being a ShopColumbia artist?

It's such an amazing opportunity to be able to have my work sold in a store, in a way that is so accessible to me as a small independent maker. I have learned so much about wholesale, branding, and about the process of getting my work into stores through ShopColumbia.

Give us an update about recent projects/artistic life events; what's next for you?

I am working on ceramics and hope to start selling them soon! I have also been using my extra time during the pandemic to learn how to screenprint, and have hopes of turning some of my designs into screenprinted t-shirts and totes.

Artist Statement
In May 2020 I graduated with a BA in Television, but I have found in the last couple of years that I really enjoy illustration. I began to really get into illustrating and making things, and in November of 2019 I started making products to sell. I aim to make cheerful and fun products that I would want myself, in the hopes that others might want them too.
