Illustrator, designer, storyteller…
I’ve been drawing since I could hold a pencil and telling stories for even longer. My love of books began in my early childhood and the desire to learn about the creation of books for children drove me to pursue the study of design and illustration in college and beyond.
Life’s journey has taken me through a number of creative jobs, including graphic designer and art director, for 17 years before I decided to return to my first love, illustration.
Now, I get to do what I love the most—illustrating for children—from my home in Virginia where I live with my husband, 2 kids, and an assortment of cats and guinea pigs.
