I have always loved creating, and as a youth I spent much of my time duplicating artists. This fondness for different art techniques has never left me and I am continuously using and exploring traditional, digital, and dimensional methods to enhance my artistic talents. Returning to college as an adult I embraced children's illustration, the perfect genre for my love of color, shape, and diversity in art.
After earning my degree from the Columbus College of Art and Design, I have gone on to use my art in my local community. I enjoy helping others, and in addition to creating, I spend time volunteering at my local church and am a proud member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
