Oof. Time passes so fast. I was pursuing a PhD in drawing, communication, and information; but I paused that while I think over whether it's something I really want to do. In the meantime, I'm working, mothering, and drawing full-time. I sometimes post drawings on Instagram @owla__oolar. It's private, but I'll let most people in.
It's been a while since I posted any news. This past May, I completed the MA in Library and Information Studies at the UW-Madison iSchool focused onArt Librarianship, Special Collections, and Digital Humanities.
