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. I work mainly in gouache, acrylic, colored pencil, and ink. 

Although most of my time is spent drawing and painting, I also thoroughly enjoy cooking, adventuring, and starting loads of books but hardly ever finishing them. I currently live in Nashville, TN with my partner, Matt, and our animal cherubs, Mori and Junie B. 

I also help run The Warren, a working studio in Nashville which houses 5 working artists and hosts workshops, demos, lectures, and other community events. 

Selected Clients: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Simon and Schuster, Frankie, Harper Collins, Penguin Random House, Wall Street Journal, Baltimore Sun, Flow Magazine, Meijer, Pharmacy Practice+, Sal Oppenhiem, Minnesota Monthly, Portland Alternative Dwellings, Kendall College of Art and Design, Amtrak, CraftSanity Magazine.
