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. I find entertainment in exploring the psychological effects created by the clash of opposing forces, particularly in interpersonal relationships. I enjoy working with watercolor, ink, graphite, charcoal, oil paint, and digital media.
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 Plympton Books, as well as authors such as John Mark Green, Chrissie Anderson Peters, and David Nadolny.
I am currently pursuing my MFA in Illustration from the Savannah College of Art & Design through their eLearning program with an expected completion around May 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.
