Sometimes I get insecure about my instagram. Being able to share something instantly is both amazing and terrifying. What if no one likes it or what if someone likes it too much and steals it?? I get a little anxiety every time I go to post something. But I’ve come to the realization that while it’s less stressful to keep my artwork to myself, it’s much more rewarding to share it with others. It’s natural to feel insecure about sharing something. But how can you expect to grow as an artist (and as a person) if you hide everything great about yourself under a rock?
Some of my favorite snaps from the past year below :)
I was just going through old files on my backup hard drive and found this image I made a few years ago. I usually don’t get emotional over celebrity deaths but Bowie was an exception for me. I’m thankful for all the inspiration he brought to this world.
Going through my old artwork. This was from 2011. I remember I liked this shirt so much that I had two of them.
Well, I’ve been a little (a lot) busy lately! Mostly because I’ve been working on launching a new web shop with two of my friends from art school. We’ve been working on Beech Hall for almost a year and are finally ready to share what we’ve made!
Our first collection was inspired by Ancient Egypt and is comprised of home goods, ceramics, and jewelry. I had so much fun making textiles and ceramics for this collection and even have some of my illustrations on jewelry, which is so cool to see! All of my ceramic pieces are one of a kind and won’t be made again.
I have some new prints up at Buddy Editions! I was inspired by the warm weather, tropical colors, and care-free living. Hope you enjoy!

An anniversary card I made for Papyrus last year. The inside text says, “I love how we’re equal in every way (except shelf space)” haah! The physical version is layered with cut paper and rainbow foil! Check it out.
