Illustrator. Designer. All around creative.
Hello there! So nice of you to stop by!
I'm an illustrator and designer born and raised in West Michigan. Wild childhood adventures with friends, trips to the library for stacks of books, and a constant pursuit of all things hands-on and hand-made shaped me into who I am today. Unable to avoid the inevitable, I pursued the arts and earned a BFA in Illustration at Grand Valley State University. Whether designing or illustrating, my work begins hands-on with sketching and evolves from there. I dabble with my many mediums, but ink and watercolor never stray far from my reach. I enjoy blending portraiture, narrative work, and hand-drawn typography.
I'm a maker, so if not at my desk drawing, I'm out exploring new ways of doing things hands-on. Textiles are my other passion. I sew, quilt, and do needlework, exploring the new textures and uses different fabric connections create. I can also be found making delicious food, studying up on some research, or headed off on an international adventure.
