Van Ma As is happily married and living with her husband, but most of her drawings depict a life alone with her dog, Parker. She tells the Huffington Post,

“Living alone isn’t as scary as it seems! Yes, there were definitely times that it sucked, but there were also countless amazing moments as well. It’s knowing that you’re on your own, and each decision you make is directly affecting how you move forward with your life. Each day you learn to be more independent than the day before. It’s definitely an experience that should be embraced.”
