About

ABOUT ME
I am an illustrator, printmaker and tattoo artist living in Vermont. I have made art since I was young and drawing always helped me to feel grounded and on purpose. I have been self employed at art-making for 10 years and I have learned a lot. As I’ve continued to grow in this work I am more committed than ever before. I feel a strong pull to communicate with images instead of words. There is a space where some things must remain mysterious and un-labeled. Humans go at a pace that tends to ignore that kind of moment. We often need to label and categorize and make a thing entirely “known” based on our cultural and social codes. Art has offered me the space where imagery makes more room for a feeling or a memory to be complex, layered and unknown. The place where the most possibility is still intact. I think images can invite folks to slow, pause, and recognize something of their own experience that is on a different level then written and spoken language can address. We are going to need tremendous imagination and empathy to survive and thrive in our current world. As we try to navigate that I hope to continue to offer a visual world of possibilities.

WHY I NEED YOU
I need you because It has been a struggle to both create artwork and be a business owner. It is difficult to bottom line accounting, planning, marketing and research as one person. It takes a lot of energy and time to imagine and draw and, typically, this doesn't add up to a reliable income in non-pandemic times. I currently have seasonal business debt and little savings. If I were to get a full time job that could cover my costs predictably, I would not be able to create the work I do right now. I need you because if I can consistently cover my business costs I would be able to commit more to the children’s book stories I’ve been dreaming for years. I could be able to volunteer my time and skills to social justice organizations working hard on different actions and campaigns. Thanks for considering
