Her interest in writing was sparked when she was asked to write a book for artists who wanted to make the leap into digital media. (“Cinema 4D, The Artist’s Project Source Book”) While serving as caretaker for her parents, she was unable to go to her studio, so she used the only creative tool she had available, her laptop, and began to craft stories using words and snippets of story in a highly visual writing style.
