Illustrator, designer, storyteller…
I’ve been drawing and telling stories since I could hold a pencil. My love of books began in my early childhood and the desire to learn more about the creation of books for children drove me to pursue the study of design and illustration in college and beyond.
Over the years, I’ve worn a lot of creative hats, from graphic designer to art director, but what I love most is making illustration for children, especially the middle-grade age group.
I make my home in Virginia with my husband, 2 kids, and an assortment of cats and guinea pigs. It’s hard not to find inspiration where you live in a place brimming with natural beauty and history.
I’ve been a member of SCBWI since 2005, and have had the pleasure of being Co-Editor of our SCBWI Mid-Atlantic regional newsletter, The Highlighter, since 2007.
