i create art using an ink pen, bamboo pen, & ink brush.
my most consistent project has been illustrating my own free verse with self-portraits. i have drawn myself over 400 times now. this project has helped me to heal a lot of suppressed damage from an abusive childhood and a series of abusive relationships. i hope to someday find a way to help others with art & journaling. 
when i'm not doing self-portraits, i like to paint sea creatures, fantastic beasts, & treasure maps. i like my art to be quirky & whimsical as well as dark & provocative.
i also dabble in graphic novels & comics.
additionally, i write flash fiction, short stories, & novels which i sometimes illustrate.

i have worked as an illustrator for other writers which i enjoy because it gives me a chance to create from voices other than my own.

if you are interested in past journal pages, in checking out my portfolio, in buying pieces of art, or in collaborating or having a commissioned piece done--check out my website: quixotic mama
