I'm a freelance illustrator & designer specializing in art and hand lettering for magazines, books, advertising, stationery, and surface design. With a background of over 10 years past experience designing and art directing children’s books, I bring a unique integration of image and type to all my projects.

After 13 inspiring years living and working in NYC,  I'm now settled in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA with my 3 favorite guys—my husband, son, and our snuggly pup, Freddie Pickles. I have a fascination for all things strange and wonderful, especially those found in Coney Island and the vibrant culture of New Orleans.
