“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
– Pablo Picasso
I am an illustrator and wildlife artist living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. While my main focus is wildlife art & children’s book illustration, I also specialize in photorealistic portraits. The mediums I work in are colored pencils, pen & ink, graphite, charcoal, watercolors, and digital painting. I was also recently featured in Graphic Design USA magazine, which was a huge honor!
I grew up in Sedona, Arizona and as a child I was always drawing. My father was an artist and I knew that’s what I wanted be. After high school, I moved to Oregon and worked several odd jobs before taking the leap to find my way back to my childhood dream of being an artist. Outside of art, I love traveling, hiking, reading, and being out in the woods with my dogs.
