Hi! I'm an illustrator and designer. I love dogs (especially Boxers), walks in the woods and exploring deserted beaches.

I'm from rural Indiana, graduate of Indiana State University and started my career in graphic design and illustration working in corporate marketing for Simon Property Group, Fisher-Price and OpenNetwork Technologies.

Twelve years ago I made the leap to start my freelance illustration career, I create illustrations for educational publishing and I've just recently started to explore creating pattern designs.
