Phthalo started sewing clothes for their stuffed animals at a young age, later moving on to alter their own outfits. While fashion and fabrics have always been a passion of theirs, they later discovered their love of literature. When PB wasn’t busy sewing, you could find them writing stories and poetry in their ever present notebook. In their teenage years, they spent a lot of time in psychiatric treatment facilities. During their stays in hospitals, Phthalo developed an affinity for painting and general crafting. Their biggest inspirations are their overwhelming love for the world, their experiences with mental illness, and their parrot, Jones.
