About

Wayward Daughter was founded in 2018 when I began to take on client design work. It’s a space where much of my art practice lives; It’s my teaching practice, my illustration and design work, my small zine press. This business is a shifting and growing thing — as my art practice changes, so does the business I run. Right now, Wayward Daughter is my hub for all creative information sharing, whether that’s through zines, classes, or collaborations!

Biography

I’m an artist and arts educator living in Elkins, WV. While I’m interested in almost every kind of making, I spend most of my time drawing, making zines, and playing with fibers. I graduated with degrees in English and Fine Art from Davis & Elkins College in 2016, and have been merging those two forms ever since. I love making art that shares information, that builds community, and that helps all people realize their creative potential. Since starting work as an artist, I’ve become passionate about educating other artists, too. I’ve taught zine- and quilt-making across Appalachia, and now teach classes in creative play online. In my own practice, I’m fascinated by science and history, activism and social progress, colors and symbols and time and space.
