About Me

That's me! Hey where did that cat come from? Just kidding - that's my Gussy cat. My uncle takes our photo together every holiday.

Personal stuff:
My loves in life aside from art: animals, fitness, science, volunteer work, attending cultural events, kayaking, travel (from road trips to far away places).

I grew up on a farm in Indiana. I've lived in a few states: Indiana, Illinois, Oregon, and California. I currently reside in Chicago.

All things art & design:
Art and design have been my life long passion since I can remember. In grade school, anytime a classmate wanted a horse added to their crayon drawing, they brought their paper to me. I loved drawing horses and soon realized I loved drawing and design in general. I studied art and theater in college and have been fortunate to always make a living in some sort of artistic endeavor - whether it be web design, graphic design, video editor or painter. I’ve done them all and loved it. My absolute favorites are illustration and graphic design. I never ever tire of looking at illustrations. They are little works of art that tell a story. What could be better?!
