It's art - it doesn't have to be perfect. It's supposed to change, it's supposed to evolve.

Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Says most of her personality comes from her mom, a radical artist and the "black sheep" of the family.
Other than her mother, no one supported her decision to go to college to study art.
Peers thought she had talent, but said she'd never make any money, wouldn't be able to pay back student loans.
Was mentored by her high school art teacher, who provided her with supplies, helped her apply to art schools.
For years, she had to take waitressing jobs on the side to support her art.
Says the evolving nature of street art helped her understand it's cool to be "a work in progress."
Realized you can't wake up one day and change the world; you change yourself first, then the people around you, etc.
Her goal as an artist is to make her audience more tolerant of others' experiences.
Keep following my journey
