I think it’s important to honor the things that make you happy. For me that tends to be television. Strong female characters, like Leslie Knope and C.J. Cregg, have informed who I am as a person and so my work is informed by the people and shows that inspire me to be better. I use fan art as a way to try new techniques and mediums. Currently, I primarily use acrylic but frequently mix mediums including colored pencil, watercolor and ink.
