I make zines with a focus on craft as well as content. My zines are hand-made using letterpress, silkscreen, and Riso printing techniques. They are made from a feminist perspective and often celebrate sensuality and femininity and are heavily visual.

When did you start making zines ... and why?

I started making zines when I was 19. I got into bookbinding and had always been an arts and crafts kinda gal, and a friend of mine was an active zinster so we colaborated on a little zine and gave it away for free at the Brooklyn Zine Fest.

How do you create your zine content?

Im often inspired by the materials available to me at the time, weather that be found imagery from an old magazine I got at a garage sale, letterpress type, or paper, my projects usually expand from there. Most of my material is silkscreen and letterpress printed as well.

Why do you think independent publishing is important?

It allows people to exchange ideas freely without being edited or taken advantage of by the system. It gives platforms to marginalized voices; it is empowering and accessible. Anyone can make a zine and share it with their community, and that can be a very powerful thing.

Sharing them with people who care. And making zines with kids in art classes and workshops.

What is your biggest challenge in making zines?

Getting started; not being lazy or timid and just getting something on the page in the first place.
