GRAPHIC DESIGNER & CHILDREN’S BOOK ILLUSTRATOR – STUDIO ARTIST

I was raised by a creative family who saw everyday tasks as opportunities to expand and grow. “Disposable” wasn’t in our vocabulary. We didn’t throw things away – instead we refreshed, renewed and repurposed – not because we were poor, but because we were innovative in a time before that was trending. This mindset has been such a gift because it taught me how to do things, from managing a paintbrush to using a sewing machine or power tool. It also instilled in me a passion for learning and a can-do attitude. These skills are the foundation of my work.

My art reflects what I know and love – people, places, and things.

It is my hope and mission to create good with my words, works, and deedsto make the world a better place.
