Like much of my art, I've been interested in hand-lettering since I was a young girl. I would doodle on lined notebook paper while sitting on a noisy bus while bumping down gravel roads that would eventually take my younger brother and I to our grandparent's farm at the end of the rural bus route.

Thankfully, I haven't bounced around a bus seat in a very long time but the whimsical flourishes and feminine elements I learned on those long bus rides still show up in my work.
