HELLO! 

I'm a freelance illustrator & designer who creates whimsical art and hand lettering for children's books, magazines, greeting cards, and advertising. With over a decade of past experience as an in-house designer and art director in children’s publishing at Penguin Books and Simon & Schuster, I bring a unique integration of imagery and typography to all my projects.

I now live in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA with my husband, son, and the world's most snuggly pup. My work is inspired by all things strange and wonderful, and the many years I spent living and working in NYC.

BFA in illustration from University of the Arts, Philadelphia
