About me

Hello! I am a freelance writer, mamma, and self-taught artist living in Tokyo, Japan. My writing is varied but focuses on art, food, and product reviews, as well as travel with a tight focus on Tokyo and Japan. My art is inspired by retro comics with sci-fi elements. I also enjoy dabbling in traditional mediums such as watercolor, acrylics, and mixed media. My current passion is working with digital art. Art and writing are a forever learning processes for me. I hope to continue to improve and learn as much as I can while connecting with others on similar interests and career goals.

My Creations

  1. Vessel

    22 October 2022

    Created during last year's Inktober challenge. I was delighted when this figure came so easily to me as figure drawing is one of my weak points. I was heavily influenced by my past pregnancy and was hoping to express beauty in the fluidity of water within the body.

  2. Hold My Hand

    25 October 2022

    Sometimes the more basic designs and creations hold an even stronger emotional impact. Done on Procreate in 2021 during the Inktober Challenge.
