I welcome the opportunity to share my creative process and work journey with others.
When my mom introduced me to drawing with pastels and the expressive style of Henri deToulouse-Lautrec, it completely rocked my world. I have been filling sketchbooks ever since.
I received a BFA in Visual Communications with an emphasis on Studio Photography from Ohio University. Before starting my own illustration business, I refined my skills as a photo editor and stylist and then graphic designer and art director in Cleveland, Los Angeles and Omaha. I stay inspired with my art supply obsession and hone my craft by continually learning new ways to create digitally and traditionally.
As a commissioned illustrator, I have created illustrations for children’s books, women’s magazines and advertisements. My work can also be seen on garden flags, gift bags and home decor.
I would love to work with you on your next project. If you would like to see existing work available for licensing please don't hesitate to contact me.
The early years.
I can provide design support and custom illustrations for in-house graphic departments or work with art directors on new concepts for pitches and presentations.
