"I can’t pinpoint a specific moment that I knew I wanted to illustrate, but I remember the moment that I realized it’s not something that’s out of reach for me to do. I always remember drawing, and I always remember enjoying it, but I don’t remember ever being encouraged to try and pursue my interests or research how I could turn it into a career, that’s something that only happened in my late teens. So I guess the moment I knew was as soon as others started to believe in me."

"There are various pieces I’ve submitted, but most likely for all of them I would have been in my home, with my cat tofu by my side and my partner nearby."

Were you listening to music when you created this piece?
Of Montreal – Wraith Pinned To The Mist

What have you learnt since creating this piece?
Everyday I learn how to appreciate the simple things in life.

 

Where do you dream of living?
I dream of living in a cosy yet spacious house somewhere quiet, surrounded by lots of trees and with lots of animals, and not many people.
