About Me

I am illustrator living in Seattle, WA. I have freelanced for many magazines, newspapers and even a few advertising agencies. I make art out of whatever it takes (from acrylics to zbrush) to make an assignment work. One of my favorite things about being an illustrator is learning about the many different topics in my assignments. It gives me new things to think about. Please consider me for your next project.

I like to run, ski, bake bread, eat good chocolate and read about almost anything - especially inventors and dead presidents. I also love to read and tweet about picture books.

I have a certificate in Writing for Children from the University of Washington. I am a member of SCBWI (Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators). I have a BFA in illustration from the School of Visual Arts.

In addition to taking on freelance assignments, I am working toward developing my own independent projects including toys, original art, websites and picture books.
