I'm a long time hobby artist, fresh off of an unintentional hiatus and fairly new to the comic world. While I've been making traditional art for as long as I can remember, I began working digitally toward the end of 2019. When I'm not creating visual art, I'm in the salon, bringing art to life in the form of curls and color.
Draws stuff. Sometimes funny. Solved a Rubik's Cube once.
