I'm an illustrator & designer, inspired by nature and great characters. 

I spent my first art classes leafing through old National Geographics and drawing all the animals and people I could find. Later on, I found the work of Carter Goodrich, Peter de Seve, Mary Blair, and Gerhard Richter, who have influenced me in the realms of humorous illustration, design, and color.

For the past four years, I have been illustrating and designing with some very talented, hilarious creatives at Victoria's Secret headquarters. In the spring and summer, I traveled to Europe and relocated to California. Currently, I am working at Minted in the Bay Area as a seasonal Design Associate, continuing my freelance and photo retouching services, and working hard to officially launch my custom illustrated portrait business in 2018.

When not working, I enjoy taking too many pictures of animals, hiking, playing the ukulele and guitar, experimenting in the kitchen, traveling, and embracing unexpected adventures.
