Reviews

"The way the artist captures the feelings, innermost thoughts, and things I didn't even realize I felt into illustrations is incredible. Her relatable images always makes me breathe a sigh of relief knowing I'm not alone in my thoughts and feelings, and what a gift that is!" (Break Up Bestie)
"Lee started on [Instagram] in February 2017 looking for an outlet for her artwork about the pain of a breakup, with no intention of turning it into a book. 'I simply wanted a space to be able to express myself, be creative and work through some emotions, ' Lee told Forbes.com." (Forbes)
