You have a great online presence. What is your art or craft and how long have you been creating?
I am a pen and ink illustrator who has been working toward a dual degree in English and Art. I have been drawing since early childhood and look forward to graduate school next year, where I will continue to hone my skills.

I love the detail in your drawings. What other things do you do besides creating?
When I'm not illustrating my own little stories, I'm writing middle-reader children's novels. I also go on little adventures with my grandmother's 60-year-old Kodak Duraflex camera. My boyfriend (a photographer) and I pretend we're time-traveling tourists with our antique machinery. Yes, we are nerds.

I love taking pictures with my old cameras too. There's just something nostalgic about the photographs. What inspires you?
I'm really inspired by patterns, especially that of wallpapers. I love anything Victorian or Edwardian and am addicted to stripes. Antique watches and clocks also fascinate me.

I love that your style is seems old world and like a fairy tale. Are there any artists that inspire you?
Unfortunately, most of the artists I adore are deceased: Edward Gorey, Gustav Klimt, and Charles Gibson. I also really enjoy the work of Maurice Sendak and Lizbeth Zwerger.

What are five words that describe you?
Meticulous, Organized, Youthful, Imaginative, Comedic
