I'm an illustrative designer with a degree in graphic design and illustration and studied at SC4 in Michigan and at Kent State University in Ohio.  After living in California and working as an in-house graphic designer creating work for editorial, print and web, I moved to the Midwest to be closer to my family.  It was then that I began to focus on my first love, illustration.

I enjoy creating colorful, detailed illustrations, paintings and patterns. I'm inspired by nature, vintage finds and antiques, beautiful interiors, and home decor. I enjoy the versatility of creating illustrations in pen-and-ink and paints although I'm quite comfortable working digitally. Often my work will cross over from one medium to the next depending on the project. I'm grateful for my graphic design background which always comes into play in the completion and delivery of every project.
