I work almost all in ink, and I do portrait illustration, comics, and other graphic pieces with the common theme of strong WOC, love, gore, tragedy, pain and heartache. My art revolves around depression- and the way that, for me personally, feminism, identifying as a woman, being of color and mental illness tie in together. I make my work as an expression of the emotions, experiences and struggles I face daily with my severe mental illness (Depression and anxiety), and also aim to counter the societal expectations for romance and sexuality that are placed on females and female-identifiers. My art is very much so a reflection of my own personal struggles, but also heavily reflects my views on how society stigmatizes mental illness, and pressures identifiers into over-valuing romance.
