"My focus is to draw the viewer into the fairytale world of fashion. What inspires me most are couture collections, bloggers, and fashion editorials. The techniques I use vary between watercolors and colored pencils. I like to complete my drawings with intense black lines that add a whimsical touch and make the illustrations come to life."
"My style hinges upon long limbs, jagged joints, and exaggerated facial features. I believe eyes tell a story, so they are key to all of my characters. I give my characters a whimsical, light sense while the theme or emotion may be darker. The juxtaposition urges the viewers to look beyond their first reactions. I want people to feel what the character is feeling and find a connection in those moments when they have felt the same."
