I’m an illustrator, designer and storyteller. I work in both traditional and digital media, always striving to create compelling, narrative illustration that exceeds the expectations of my clients.
I’m inspired by mid-century illustration, Russian lacquer miniatures, analog photography, old cities, abandoned buildings, junk shops, ephemera and, of course, all the tales that are told that touch the heart and ignite the imagination.
Here’s a little more about me…
I’ve been drawing since I could hold a pencil and telling stories even longer. I fell in love with books early on and have never lost that love.
In fact, it was the desire to know everything I could involving the creation of books that drove me to pursue the study of design and illustration in college and beyond.
I’ve walked a long and winding road since those days, working as a graphic designer and art director for 17 years in the Federal Sector before I decided to return to my first love, illustration for the children’s publishing market.
Now I get to tell my own stories, doing what I love the most from my home in Chesterfield, Virginia along with my husband, two kids, my cat and seven rescued guinea pigs (really, I don’t have a problem).
