I use a mix of traditional and digital mediums to make my illustrations.

While my background is in traditional oil painting and gouache, I enjoy bringing different elements together in Photoshop.

I hold an M.A. in Children’s literature and I spent two years in the M.F.A. program at the University of Southern California in Digital Arts and Animation.

I have also studied Illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York and spent time in Italy studying figure and plein air landscape.

My travels internationally have inspired my works and my stories.

In the past I have worked as a freelance Illustrator, University Literature Lecturer and as a Museum Arts Educator.
