I am an editorial illustrator that works in publishing and advertisement. The goal with my illustrations is to help the viewer think deeply about the text. Articles can be cold—merely reporting facts or sharing a story without the personal details. My illustrations allow you to understand the article on a personal level, making it easier to connect to and adding a deeper layer to the piece. Enjoy!

BLM is about deaths and unfair treatment of minorities by law enforcement spanning decades/centuries. Jan 6 was about people throwing a temper tantrum because their candidate lost in an election where their side did all they could to suppress minority votes.

Official drivers: Leilla Lomardi, Williams, Giovanna Amanti, Brabham. Test drivers: Sussie Wolff, Williams. Tatiana Calderón, Alfa Romero.
