About Me

I’m an illustrator, writer, graphic designer, and visual artist living in northern Virginia with my husband, two inspiring and tiring children, and an amazing disappearing-reappearing Siberian forest cat.

My career has taken me through a variety of creative and mostly kid-oriented paths. I’ve worked on feature films; digitally colored comic books; art directed and designed web content for children’s television and toy properties; created worksheets, interactive media, instructional animations and illustrations for k-12 educational curricula; and worked on a picture book or two.

I’m a history nerd, yoga mom, kitchen alchemist, occasional fiddler, Arkansas traveler, west coast hippie, and lifelong New Yorker (in exile).
