I am an illustrator, painter, and make believe maker. My work has a home in children's and young adult books, magazines, galleries and more. You can usually find me drawing at The Warren, a collective art studio that I share with other illustrators and designers. My preferred materials are colored pencil and gouache, but I also love to experiment with new mediums.  

Other random facts about me: Although I'm not very brave, I love all things spooky and mysterious. I will eat a whole bag of chips if you'll let me (Salt & Vinegar please) My favorite color is light blueish grey. When I'm not drawing, I can be found cooking. I love testing new recipes and am currently trying to perfect my pie crust. I have three siblings and we grew up in a small town in Michigan where the winters are cold and the squirrels are fat. My favorite childhood book was Boney Legs by Joanna Cole, illustrated by Dirk Zimmer. That basically sums me up. 

I currently live in Nashville, TN with my cute husband, Matt, and our animal cherubs, Mori and Junie B.
