Hometown: Owosso, MI
Family: Three siblings
Season: Autumn
Childhood Book: Boney Legs, Joanna Cole

Past-time: Cooking new recipes
Dream Project: 3D Animation set detailing
Strength: Improvisation

What else? Just ask!

My husband, Matt, and I spent time living and working in Phoenix AZ, Denver CO, and most recently Nashville TN - but we are moving to Osaka, Japan next month. We can't wait! We have two precious animal babies, Mori and Junie B, and it's my dream someday to live on a farm smothered in animals. Perhaps I'll even learn how to garden. 

A few of my lovely clients include: Tundra Books, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins, Penguin Random House, Annick Press, KidsCan Press, Frankie, Wall Street Journal, Flow Magazine, Meijer, Sal Oppenhiem, Minnesota Monthly, Portland Alternative Dwellings, Kendall College of Art and Design, Amtrak, CraftSanity Magazine.
