About Me:
Hello! I'm a graphic designer/illustrator currently living in Michigan. When not snowed in I enjoy gardening, hiking, biking, and sleeping in hammocks. I am looking to build upon my existing abilities in illustration and am actively seeking freelance job opportunities in that field. My main focus is children's book, animal, and map illustration. I work within traditional, digital, and mixed mediums. Thank you so much for looking at my work!
