For the next few days, Lotusland will be posting features on the artists and musicians involved in our event on Saturday April 2nd.

My artwork tends to be very dark, surreal, and emotional. My work often explores themes of mental health, specifically my experiences with anxiety and depression. My work aims to empathize with those affected by mental health issues, and to let them know they are not alone. With this, I also wish to raise mental health awareness, as mental health is often compromised and deemed not as important as physical health. My work also often explores notions of feminism, and is highly influenced by music, tattoo flash artwork, and surrealist art. Most of my work is done in ink, pencil, or acrylic paint. I also
enjoy experimenting with pencil crayon and collage.

I have done a lot of collaborative work with local bands in Vancouver and British Columbia, such as with the bands Frogpile and MO/A. I am also a writer and contribute to Lotusland Magazine.
