About Me

I am an illustrator and surface pattern designer specializing in all things whimsical! My work is often inspired by the organic shapes and patterns found in nature and I am always searching for new inspiration from cultures around the world and their traditional crafts.

I graduated from Watkins College of Art in Nashville, Tennessee and live in Kentucky working on various illustration and design projects. Most of my client work is created digitally on an Ipad Pro but I also love working with gouache and watercolor and combining digital and traditional techniques.

While I work on a variety of projects, I absolutely love creating surface patterns for products and I am proudly represented by an international art licensing agency, Pink Light Studio. Please contact my agent Mary Beth at marybeth@pinklightdesign.com for licensing inquires.
