I have always been drawn to contemporary artwork that employs an element of subtle humor. My personal work has been described as both childish and sophisticated, whimsical, and oftentimes provocative. Music is my second love, and I adore creating conceptual portraits of musicians, so much so that I based my MFA thesis on it. I like to work digitally or with traditional materials like watercolor, ink, graphite, charcoal, and oil paint.
Professionally, I have over 2 decades worth of illustration and graphic design experience. I very much enjoy conceptual work, including book covers, editorial illustrations, and celebrity portraiture. My work has been featured in SheKnows Magazine and The Drummers Journal. I have done book covers and interior book illustrations for John Mark Green, Chrissie Anderson Peters, and David Nadolny. My design experience has been primarily in production (direct mail, logos, business cards, postcards, etc.) with companies like Valassis, Clipper Magazine, and One Brand Marketing. As part of my MFA, I am completing a social media internship with Bookstr. I will complete a teaching internship this Fall.
I expect to complete my MFA in Illustration from SCAD in the Fall of 2022. My BFA is in Painting, which I obtained from Arizona State University in 2007. I also have an AA in Visual Communication from Collins College. I live in the beautiful mountains of Roanoke, Virginia, and I’m always looking for my next project in addition to self-improvement and learning opportunities.
