My current work consists of pen and ink drawings, or "doodles."  These are a release from control and struggle for perfection.  They are an exercise in letting the imagination wander, opening up to possibilities and allowing for creativity to flow freely from the mind into being.  

What to expect from developing series: story telling, questioning social perceptions, commentary on gender socialization, and a punch of serious with a pinch of playful.  I cannot wait to share!
