I am a freelance illustrator and designer living in Madison, Wisconsin.
I love to draw so I practice all the time. I am a prolific illustrator and graphic designer. I have shelves of sketchbooks filled with illustrations, characters, vignettes, drawings, paintings, doodles and ideas. I love to create nature illustrations, animal art, surface pattern collections, silly portraits and people, maps and hand lettering. I am currently illustrating a series of children’s picture books for an author I met at a women’s networking event.
I am well-versed in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign and Procreate. I have a day job so I have been focusing on traditional illustrations lately to get a break from the computer.
My creative work is inspired by my adventures in nature, my love for my park-inspired backyard, and a wanderlust for exploring the outdoors. I enjoy people watching, hiking in the woods, kayaking, swimming in the ocean and biking the trails.
My style is playful, youthful, colorful, expressive and detailed with vintage-y color palettes.
