Her captivating performances involve dance-like movements that are just as much the main focus as the final, large-scale drawings. Watching her process is a mesmerizing experience where lines emerge from her many natural, physical gestures. Without hesitation, she repeats her movements and smears the lines together into the final, unpredictable works.

Dragon Heroes - Online comic As a kid I wanted to achieve my dream to write, illustrate and publish a book to show people that with hard work anything is possible. I believe that everybody has some kind of dream and seeing that someone else achieving their dream would give them hope.
