I’m at­tracted to the melan­choly, the ro­man­tic, the strange, and the beau­ti­ful, which hope­fully comes through in my work.”

She tries to make the un­der­draw­ing beau­ti­ful and let it carry through in the fin­ished piece. “I also love shape mak­ing, adding graphic el­e­ments and in­cor­po­rat­ing flow. I’m for­ever com­pelled to pull out im­ages from my mind, try­ing to dis­til them on to pa­per.”
