I am a trans illustrator from California. I started out by drawing Kirby fan art at around three or four. From there I never stopped drawing- I would doodle in every class and while I was supposed to be doing homework. I had a great, powerful love for the worlds I could create and make real on the page. There was a pressure for me to go into STEM or Law, which ironically made me want to escape into drawing even more. Eventually, I was lucky enough to pursue my childhood dream at Pratt.
