My primary works are fantasy comics with challenging themes for young adults. Dark fairytales and folklore were favorite subjects of my sister and I when we were young, and we told scary stories to keep each other awake at night. That fascination with fantasy and ghost stories has continued into my professional career in the form of collaborative graphic novels, including my continued story projects with my sister. Fantasy continues to be a popular form of escapism, which can feel like a necessity for young adults in this turbulent age. With a wealth of content and media to choose from, it can be tough to stand out. I bring a background of theatre as well as an interest in world history and cultural mythology, which contributes to the eclectic look of my work. More than just aesthetics, I understand that characters should grow from their narrative experiences. The stakes should matter by having a profound psychological effect on the main character, and builds throughout the story’s progress. This is the thesis of my approach to visual storytelling: to create compelling and emotionally intelligent stories that compel readers to return again and again, while offering tools to navigate a complex world.
