After many years of all sorts of freelance art pursuits, I discovered graphic recording in 2012. My solo practice, based in Calgary, Alberta, is called The 23rd Story.

I don’t have any formal training in this field – I’ve just always taken notes this way. I studied literature and art, so that’s part of my background in the creation of visual stories. I also worked as a flight attendant for a long time, which helped me to master the ability to do a lot of fast-paced work in a very limited space while a lot of people watch.
