Sheida Shekarian reckons herself an illustrator. Her passion sits her in her room (based outside of Toronto), closes the door and allows her to joyfully rot for days on end. She hopes her work will make a difference to someone, somewhere. She also has a confession to make. This took her quite a while to write.
