Hello!
I am an artist and author who makes graphic novels, artists’ books and zines. My first YA graphic novel, UNRETOUCHABLE (Lerner / Graphic Universe), tackles social media and image manipulation and comes out 9/13/22. I am currently working on my second graphic novel, a memoir about my adolescence in the troubled teen industry. A number of university libraries have added my work to their collections and my fine art has been shown in group and solo shows in New York City, Chicago, and Detroit. My illustrations have been featured in publications such as Sleek Magazine and Vice. I received my BA with honors from NYU's Gallatin School for Individualized Study in 2017. I am also the illustrator for Whole Girl by Sadie Radinsky (Sounds True, Feb 2021). Originally from New York City, I now live in western Massachusetts with my husband, two-year-old daughter and our three-toothed Pomeranian named Breakfast (who also happens to be a meme).
