✦ SHIPPING ✦
When will my order ship?
I am now shipping ALL orders on Mondays! Thank you for your patience while I try this out!
My sticker order hasn’t arrived yet…
If you are within the US give stickers 1-2 weeks to arrive. If you are international please allow a month for stickers to arrive. The postage I use is inexpensive but sometimes takes a while! Please do contact me if your stickers don’t show up after a month.
Why is shipping so expensive to my country?
Unfortunately shipping anything more than a letter international from the US is pretty expensive. I have it as low as I can have it <3 If you want to get something internationally but don’t want to pay the high shipping price, grab some stickers! I can ship them much more affordably!

✦ GROWING AS AN ARTIST ✦
How did you develop your style?
I see style as a fluid thing. After tackling my 365 project (drawing everyday for a year) I naturally tuned my art towards a better representation of what I envisioned in my head. I find that what helped me hone in on a style as an artist was taking a lot of time to improve my skills. I was creating so much the year I did that project that I was able to see my improvements month to month and even week to week. It’s not something everyone has time for but there’s not a better way to find yourself as an artist than making work.
Did you go to school for art?
I transferred art schools once and dropped out twice. NICE! School wasn't for me. There are TONS of benefits of going to art school such as, networking, being able to learn and try expensive equipment + supplies, a concentrated community of artists, art outreach programs, among many other things. I wasn't taking advantage of what it had to offer so I decided to spend my money elsewhere and continuing practicing solo.
Do you have any advice for beginner artists?
My best advice for beginning artists is to not overthink it. Once I let go of wanting to make things look a certain way or to look "right," I was able to relieve a lot of stress I had associated with making art. Jump in before you have time to doubt yourself!
