Meet the Maker is a new series of features highlighting some of the most amazing makers across the North Shore! We will be featuring a handful of new makers every Monday to hopefully help mitigate the added financial strain that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the creative community. Follow along on Instagram and Facebook as well!

The world is curious — what inspires you to “make/create”?
Often, my inspirations come from fairy tales, folklore, various religions, and mythos.
Roughly how much are you expecting in losses over the next month?
I’m currently relying on my art commissions/sales as I have been laid off due to COVID-19.
What measures are you taking to reduce lost revenues?
Selling original pieces and taking on more commission work.
What do you think could help everyone in this challenging time?
I think something to ease the disconnection and financial burden would help everyone in this uncertain time.
