Drawing makes me happy. I especially love creating illustrations for children's books and bringing an author's vision to life. I am currently working on my own stories as well. My finished illustrations are digital but they all begin with a sharpened pencil and paper. Before becoming a full-time illustrator, I refined my skills as a photo editor and stylist, graphic designer and art director in Los Angeles and Cleveland. I stay inspired by building massive train configurations with my children, coloring with crayons, jamming on my vintage Pearl Export drums, and wandering the children's book section. I currently live under the big puffy clouds of Nebraska with my two children.
