I started making comics in my 30s to cope with my mom’s illness. These turned into my first book, Tangles: A Story About Alzheimer’s, My Mother and Me (currently in development as an animated feature). Right now I’m working on my second book and making mini-comics about periods, kicking boys, having a partner with chronic pain and other stories from my life. I also teach comics classes in UBC’s Creative Writing Program.
