Organization Details

Toronto , Ontario
M6K 2X7


I'm an illustrator and cartoonist who grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and recently moved to Toronto. I make work for things like children's literature, concert posters and private commissions. I write and illustrate my own comics and zines and sometimes exhibit my work.

Thoughts About Art and Community

Having recently moved to Toronto, I wish to learn from the community, hear what it has to say and integrate into it. Visually I attempt to create a sense of intimacy and safety in my work, and to focus on subject matter that emphasises friendship (especially between womxn), love, curiosity and reverence for nature.


As a freelancer I am available to illustrate almost anything you like! I also sell my comics, zines and prints in person and online.
