Hey friends! I did some quick illustrations of some of the things keeping me busy during quarantine. Let me know if any of these apply to you too! Let me now if there’s anything else keeping you sane right now! Stay well, friends. #Positivity #Quarantine #Home #Art #artist #Coronavirus
Making art is so hard for me. Not the technical side of things; the skills have always come naturally to me. But the mental side of it is the mountain I have to scale every time. Art is a challenge. But it’s usually an “I want to face this challenge head-on” situation, but it’s still difficult.

“The idea of waiting for something makes it more exciting.” -Andy Warhol Last Christmas, my mom gave me tickets to visit The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. Between busy schedules and snowed out plans, we never made it to the museum in 2019, but last weekend we finally got to go!

Recently, I've had an obsession with the phrase "live your best life," because it's such a simple goal. Actually implementing it has been a much more difficult feat though, so I wanted to share some of the things I've learned along the way.

I am a graphic designer. Not because I have a degree or ever took a single class in graphic design, but because I decided junior year of high school that I was going to be one. When I started college and things didn't quite go to plan, I embraced a "fake it 'til you make it" attitude and gained more experience than I ever imagined. It started with an assignment eleventh grade English class, where we had to research a career we were interested in pursuing after graduation. It
