I'm an illustrator and designer, born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. The art bug bit me early in life. Watching my dad create art for toy packaging I soon was next to him coloring with markers and pencils.


Upon graduating from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a BFA in illustration, I moved back home to Cincinnati to work in the corporate world. After 10 years of working in branding and design agencies, I decided to begin freelancing to follow my passion of illustration and spend time at home with my growing family.


I enjoy creating fun quirky characters for the children's market and creating fun patterns for different holidays and themes. I have been fortunate enough to create surface patterns, design, illustrate, and create characters for such companies as American Greetings, JoAnn fabrics, Disney, Hallmark, Design House Greetings, Pampers, Puffs Tissues, Pringles, CR Gibson, and Robert Kaufman.


I love children’s books, hoarding fabric, sewing, typography, and I am a bit of a nut for anything Disney. Enjoy taking a look around my site!
