I am a Texan-New Yorker, cartoonist, and illustrator, who draws, paints, makes prints, and tells stories. Raised in Texas, I had already decided two things by the time I was 4 years old that I wanted to be an artist and live in New York City. It was a long, circuitous route, but eventually, I accomplished both. Before settling in New York, I spent approximately one million years in graduate school, studying art history, specializing in Medieval and Renaissance art with a focus on visual narrative. I scampered down from the ivory tower to work as a copywriter in advertising. I have studied painting, drawing, and printmaking at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

I make comics, zines, prints, and illustrations and work both digitally and old school on paper, depending on the task. My work explores issues related to women and pop culture.
