I am a freelance graphic designer and illustrator who is always curious. I am a creative at heart and find outlets in many fields such as fine art and digital illustration, creative writing and equestrianism. Passionate about learning and trying new things, I am always up for a new and exciting challenge. Graphic design is the art of problem solving. I believe that there should be more to design than a pretty picture. Visual storytelling is one of the most powerful forms of communication and can portray the essence of your vision in a single glance. One of my passions within the art of design is illustration. My inner child comes alive and the creative spark is always there! I love working with authors to illustrate and design children's literature. I am a published illustrator and designer of the adorable tale, "The Rat Fairies" which you can find on Amazon. Stay tuned for more books hitting the shelves soon!

A lot of things have changed since I was a second grader with a lined notebook of fanciful crayoning. But my imagination isn't one of those things. As an adult I still make an effort to stay in touch with my inner child and now I am seeking work in illustration. It is my dream to illustrate children's books. I work in a variety of mediums and a variety of styles including both realistic and stylized. Work I have done includes cover art, murals and studio art.
