About this piece:

I grew up sleeping next to a window and I wonder if that’s where all my bad dreams escaped. Instead, bits of nature crept inside and into my head, enticing me to play in my backyard. I’d watch deer wander nearby and marvel at their ability hop fences. I’d pretend to be the cheetah I saw at the zoo once. Sometimes I’d pluck dandelions and bring them into the house, certain they were the most beautiful flower on earth. My brother and I would toss silver maple seeds high in the air and watch them twirl to the ground like helicopters. We were just in the suburbs of Cleveland, hardly exotic, but there was always plenty to explore.

About this artist:

I’m an illustrator and explorer hailing from Cleveland, Ohio. I currently spend my days as Marketing Coordinator for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, and  I spend my evenings reading, plotting my next travel adventure, and illustrating. I draw traditionally in pen & ink - using a dip pen, while less convenient than drawing digitally, makes me feel like Charlotte Bronte.
