I grew up in various parts of Southern California and received a BA in Art from California State University, Fullerton. Now I live in San Diego with my husband and 5 children. One of my favorite things to do with my children is to read beautifully illustrated books to them. I also like to play and teach piano, sing, swim, go to the beach and the mountains, and explore new places. Most of all I love to create art.
I am a freelance illustrator. I love color and I love simplicity with some detail. I like things to look painted and designed, not photo realistic, but realistic enough to feel like you could step into the scene.
I enjoy connecting with other illustrators at SVS, SCBWI conferences and meetings and on instagram.
