bio


I have always loved art and during school, art projects were always my favorite. In third grade, my art teacher presented me with a big green pencil case (which I still have today) for having the best drawing in the class. I went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design and Advertising from O’More College of Design in Franklin, TN. I have been a professional artist for 20 years and have had the opportunity to use my artistic talents as a graphic designer, children’s book illustrator, licensing artist and a three-dimensional fine artist specializing in found object/mixed media art. I’ve worked one-on-one with over 100 illustration and design clients, licensed designs to over 25 manufacturers from all over the world and have had my found object art grace the walls of non-profits, school and private collectors. From magazine, greeting cards and advertising, to CD covers, packaging and children’s books, I approach each project with whimsy and creativity guaranteed to put a smile on any child’s (and parent’s) face. A Nashville native, I left the land of Country Music for the land of Krispy Kreme and currently live in Winston-Salem, NC, where my husband, daughter and son give me plenty of inspiration.
