I grew up in California. Then I got a degree in Illustration and Design at Brigham Young University. After that I did an internship in NYC at Harper Collins. For fun and adventure I moved to Seattle. For more fun and adventure I got married. We had some kids. They are crazy and cute and amazing (I may be biased). In my free time we go on play dates, throw bread at unsuspecting water fowl, and do "projects." I like to draw and paint and make messes and clean up when I'm done (I finally learned that part). I love Love LOVE illustrating. I've been a freelance illustrator for over ten years and there's nothing I'd rather be doing.
