What inspires her?

She was inspired by her adopted dog Parker, but she's always been an artist. Via Bored Panda..."I've been drawing since I could remember, but on and off, never really serious. I started doing these illustrations about a year and a half ago because I wanted to get back into drawing again." When asked about her process, the artist shared, "I use Photoshop, normally start with a rough sketch, and then work in the local colors, adding lighting as I go." It takes her around 2-4 hours to finish a piece. "I'm constantly trying to push myself to do different things, so sometimes the trial and error take more time."
