What are some tips you have for someone who experiences a miscarriage?

1. Delete all pregnancy apps

2. Unsubscribe from all pregnancy update emails

3. Research postpartum mood disorders so you can be on the lookout for them

What made you decide to create artwork of the children's families have lost?

I started out just creating artwork for myself but the. People started asking me to make some for them too and it was helping them heal like it was for me 

What plans do you have for your artwork? What is next for you?

I don’t think I’ll ever stop making the portraits even when I’m so stressed out I can’t sleep. The healing experience is so powerful and I have so much joy in providing that for people! I’d like to move towards starting a nonprofit to be able to provide even Moore care for these women

What is one of your biggest accomplishments so far when it comes to what you are doing in this community?

Helping raise awareness about miscarriage kits! The video I shared was able to reach over 2.1 million people and reading the comments made me even more confident in spreading the word! Women deserve closure in their loss
