We are all megasharks.

When I was six, I received my first collection of Calvin and Hobbes comics and became instantly addicted to cartoons and characters. I was always quiet and cautious, but suddenly there was this alternate universe that I could tap where I could make anything happen. I began by copying the panels but it wasn't enough; I had to make new characters, meld them together, put creatures next to other creatures in places they had no reason to be. I had created a new world, with an exponential population growth.

It's still growing.

When I was six, I naturally assumed adults had everything figured out and that one day I would be one of them and I would just do whatever it was that they did all day. I didn't know that I would still feel small and weak and too scared to show what I was really feeling.

So I spoke through my drawings and to my surprise other people felt it too. This revelation gave me a strength I didn't know my tiny body could possess.

I invite you into my world with the hope that you will find something that speaks to you; the parts of you that are playful and childlike and odd, that feel out of place. No matter what the world is telling you, you are not alone. You are awesome and you are strong. You are a megashark.

    I love animals and draw them to express feelings that are otherwise hard for me to say. When I'm not making art, you can usually find me baking and obsessively watching Twin Peaks in my Colorado home.
