I have been drawing caricatures professionally since 1984. I began my career at Six Flags Over Texas, and have since drawn caricatures at several state fairs, tourist attractions, festivals, shopping malls, private parties, conventions, trade shows, and a wide variety of events. I am one of the fastest caricaturists in the world, and my style is popular with those who see themselves and others in my work. I also have illustrated for advertisements and drawn cartoons that have been published in magazines and newspapers, created murals, and have been involved with various other projects.

Illustrator, filmmaker, mad scientist. I am currently studying digital media arts at Huntington University, where I eat, sleep and get into mischief. I've been working with a wide range of artistic mediums my whole life; from video, to painting, to digital art. I've created music videos, designs, and other multi-media content for a number of clients. Some including Huntington University, Beulah Beach, the indie music duo Jenny & Tyler, and the metal band Refractions. I've won numerous art awards (including best of show). My short animated film "Murphy's Law" premiered at the 49 hour Film Fest in Indianapolis, and my film "Partial Frequency" won best in its category. I am young, enthusiastic, and ready to get to work.

I'm a single mother of two also talented and amazing boys. Art and anything and everything surrounding art has been my way since I first scribbled waaay outside the lines, with my first set of crayolas. I've fulfilled varying requests and personal ventures of varying bits and pieces of art work over time which include illustration in pen and ink and graphite, collage, web comic character concept and design, with contributions being posted at aisle9comics.com, mural painting, caricature art and anything else I can take on as a challenge. I thrive on deadlines and new ideas and am wanting and willing to break outta the box and venture down more exciting and satisfying avenues of accomplishment, which would better engage my artistic talents.
