Type of work
During this past year, it became increasingly difficult to feel motivated or cheerful. It seemed like each day brought a new set of tragic events or stories of loss and hurt.
I felt compelled to respond to these events by creating work that simply celebrated the small daily victories I experienced that reminded me of joy and gladness. These illustrations, which resemble the shape of badges, symbolize the idea of earning a greater appreciation for the things I didn't give myself enough credit for or merely overlooked. Using bright colors and fun images, I wanted to convey that sense of joy in each illustration.
