She’s a third generation illustrator, following in the footsteps of her father and grandfather. Her work tends toward the handmade and stripped back, and often focusses on ideas about women and their bodies. She also makes a line of jewellery and homewares and runs a dirty small press. Her clients include the New York Times, the New Yorker, Penguin Random House, and Urban Outfitters.
The Inspiration behind "Mirror / Mirrior"
I wanted to play with how the sock would be viewed from the front, the side, and behind - how from some angles it would be more abstract, and from others the design would be more visible. And I can’t resist drawing girls, symmetrical designs and inverted colors.
