Hello! I’m a writer/illustrator specializing in children’s media.
I'm currently working on a middle-grade illustrated novel as my thesis for an M.F.A children's literature program.
This site also serves as an amalgamation of my online haunts, and is a dumping ground for works in progress.
Risocat is the name of my risograph studio owned and operated by me!
I run an EZ220 with black, bright red, teal, fluorescent pink and metallic gold ink. I use white Domtar Cougar, eggshell Mohawk paper and various kozo papers. Bookbinding is done by hand using a Japanese stab bind technique or on a sewing machine.
Fooood, frill, video games, dolls, and children’s books!
