With over 13 years experience as a freelance illustrator and designer, I specialize in book cover illustration and picture book illustration. I love bringing another dimension to authors' stories, shining a light on their characters and themes and drawing readers in with a need to know more.

I'm proficient with graphite and colored pencils, ink, and acrylic paint, and Adobe CC programs Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects, and Premier Pro.
