You can usually find me behind my computer imagining myself as the characters I create to bring them to life. I work primarily digitally, but also enjoy putting a pencil to paper or paint on a brush now and then as well.
I have illustrated a number of children’s books including A Girl With A Pink Cape, A Boy With A Cape and Niko & Kate. I am also working on a series of illustrations for Chicago Treasure with Larry Broutman.
I graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a BA in Computer Graphics and Animation.
I live in Joliet, IL with my faithful dog Annie by my side all day while I create.
I am a proud member of the following organizations:
- SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators)
- Chicago-Area Illustrators Network Representative
- TAGOL (The Artist Guild of Lockport)
- Executive Board Member
- The Romeoville Art Society
