After receiving an email with a link to this artist's interview, I chose her for an Awareness artist. The interview digressed a lot, so I mostly relied on the article.
What I got is that she did not intend to be an artist, and didn't like drawing classes at college, but started a project after college where she documented every one of her credit card statements because she was frustrated that she couldn't pay them and wanted to bring money discussion into public posts. She got tired of this and started a daily drawing project where she drew everything she bought every day.
I enjoy the simplicity in the work and the fact that it isn't trying to make any big statement. Some of them are very cute, like a doodle of a sweater with a short excited comment. This is what a lot of my doodles in my sketchbook and my notes look like. I don't think I will be incorporating anything from her into my work, though. Overall I don't like it that much. Also, daily drawing challenges are so hard! And she does them for years.
