Bio:

I’m a freelance children’s illustrator currently living in Cleveland, Ohio.

I enjoy making artwork that tells a delightful story and has a handmade feeling. My work is inspired by nature, cute animals, and celebrates diverse cultures from around the world.

My artwork has appeared in magazines, books, and galleries. Recent clients include: They Draw and Travel, Stroly, Uppercase Magazine, and 798 Art District Children’s Art Gallery.

I grew up in Florida with three siblings, several cats, and quirky parents who obsessed over recreating the Philippine jungle in our backyard. Like many children, I loved crayons. I would lose myself in the colors, drawing away. Not much has changed, except now I use gouache, watercolors, and colored pencils.

After high school, I went north and studied at the Columbus College of Art and Design and earned a BFA in product design. After a few years of freelancing in design, I returned to my love of painting and transitioned to illustration and the wonders of visual storytelling.

I hope you enjoy my illustrations. If you are interested in working with me or would like to say hello, feel free to get in touch, and I invite you to follow along on social media.
