I like to draw - and I draw every day! My colorful editorial and children's-themed mixed-media illustrations are often described as whimsical or inspirational. I am influenced by many things, like nature, folktales, mid-century aesthetics, current events, psychology, humor, and so much more. And I'm especially fond of animals doing silly things. Everything is a potential idea to be illustrated. I work primarily with mixed-media (pen & ink, watercolor inks, colored pencils), and I am also venturing into digital techniques. I have lived in Asheville since 2008, and I'm thrilled to be a part of the downtown arts scene.
