Now a member of the Pizza Island cartoonists’ collective in New York, she has won Ignatz and Stumptown awards for her series I Want You (published by both Buenaventura and Pigeon Press) and has illustrated for the New York Times, Chronicle Books, Glamour, Vice magazine, thePortland Mercury, and The Believer, among others.
