I dreamt one day of traveling the US fulltime, drawing and painting the world around me. Now I'm living my dream! I'm an illustrative designer living with my husband in our tiny home on wheels, near sparkling, crystal clear oceans, majestic mountains, expansive deserts, beside beautiful lakes and rippling streams. We explore nature and the towns we travel through, visiting historical sites, enjoying food at local eateries and shopping for vintage treasures. These experiences are what inspire me and influence my art. I always carry a sketchbook, journaling my experiences and a camera. I love photography and take many photos to remember what I've experienced and to use as reference for my illustrations and paintings.

I hold a degree in graphic design and illustration, studying at SC4 in Michigan and at Kent State University in Ohio. While living in California and working as an in-house graphic designer creating work for editorial, print and web, I began to focus on my first love, illustration.

I enjoy creating colorful, detailed illustrations, both digitally and traditionally. Often my work will cross over from one medium to the next depending on the project. After working in a corporate environment for many years with constant deadlines, I’m organized and experienced in communicating and collaborating with multiple teams and disciplines, to deliver every project on time.
