About the Artist

Originally from Cincinnati, I’ve been designing and illustrating for over 25 years, for clients large and small. My degree is from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Art, Architecture & Planning. I’ve worked for a division of Bates Advertising in their creative department as a technical artist and illustrator on accounts such as Wendy’s and The State of Ohio Governor’s Office. I have also worked for a small Christian publisher as a designer/illustrator for book covers and various illustration jobs. I also have my degree in Art Education and have taught in public, private, and charter schools. My freelance work has spanned my whole professional life. My focus now is on children’s book illustration which has been my dream to do since I was four years old! I’m also a mom to two great kids in college who I consider to be my greatest accomplishment!

When I’m not drawing, I’m boating with my husband on the Chesapeake Bay, visiting my son and daughter at college, or reading from my ever-growing stack of books! I also love going to art museums, great restaurants, collecting vintage children’s books, funny comedies, and exploring new places. I’m known for my yearly handmade Christmas cards and chocolate chip cookies.
