I am an illustrator, writer, and all around creative person! I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Illustration in 2011. I mostly work in gouache, ink, colored pencil, and digital. My style seems to fit most with children's work, young adult work, comics, and editorial. I would love to illustrate more children's books!

Originally from Louisville, KY, I now reside in Chicago, IL with my wonderful energetic dog, Frankie. Most of my time is spent drawing or painting, but I also enjoy museum trips, adventuring, and reading as much as I can!

Selected clients include Cricket Magazine, BeerAdvocates, Baltimore Magazine, Louisville Magazine, Military Officer Magazine, Her Mind Magazine, Kentucky Living and Kentucky Shakespeare

My work has been recognized by Society of Illustrators, Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, Spectrum, and 1st place for Best Illustration in 2015 Statewide Editors Association Willie’s contest.

Galleries I've worked with include Society of Illustrators, Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, Light Grey Art Lab, Gallery Nucleus, and Gilah.

Publications include Spectrum 23, Spectrum 21, American Illustration 32, Dirty Diamonds #5, Dirty Diamonds #7, 1001 Knights, and Then it Was Dark.
