About my work:
I explore personal accounts of femme aesthetics focused on lesbian representation and womanhood through illustration. More specifically, the driving topics for my illustrations are softness, connectedness and the reclamation of space. I create images of tenderness that are meant to be relatable, comforting and validating.
I believe queer representation can make a difference, my illustrations are intended to challenge heteronormativity by making us queer femmes more visible and relatable.
My work is rooted in feminist values and includes images of strong femme folks who inspire me to be authentic. Also lots of cute animals and flowers <3
