Hello! I'm a student, writer, illustrator, and editor based in the United States. I'm experienced with a wide range of writing forms, ranging from songs and poems to short stories and scripts to academic pieces and reviews. I am also capable of a range of drawing styles, from the more cartoony to the more realistic. As an artist, I've found my art to develop more organically by adapting to what works best for a particular project as opposed to enforcing a strict style. I enjoy projects with a streak of humor- whether it be witty or slapstick- and am particularly interested in doing work for charity projects and causes. In the past, I have... designed (and continue to design) t-shirts available on the site RedBubble co-designed, co-managed, and painted a mural for a local zoo donated art to a silent auction to benefit the same local zoo had my poetry published in the local newspaper and in a contest winner's anthology had a book review published on my local library's website had my artwork displayed in student galleries been selected to attend multiple annual K-12 county writing conferences
