How did you start making art that empowers people?
I started doodling as a response to the style of art and illustration coming out of the activist circles and online communities I follow. I felt really empowered by the accessibility of it all and wanted to contribute to the conversations I saw happening, especially in relation to causes I care most deeply about.
What do you do for self-care?
I try to be really honest with myself about needing rest or alone time, and I've started trying to be more purposeful in letting the people around me know when I need or want something. I think those two practices help me take care of my mind and body in a lot of different ways. Always a work in progress, though, that's okay.
