When I was a kid I wanted to be the first woman NFL football player, a truck driver, or maybe a zoologist. I was interested in pretty much anything and everything. I really enjoyed digging up colossal holes in my backyard hoping to find ancient artifacts and thinking that I’d probably dig all the way to Australia. I missed it by about 4,500 miles. (Oh well.)
Mainly I spent lots of time drawing. I liked to draw all over my school notes, on my knees and arms (my parents didn’t like that one), and in my journal instead of writing in it. I would illustrate how I felt, what my next big adventure was, and maybe even turn my schoolmates into zombies if they got too annoying.
I graduated with a BFA in Illustration at BYU and had the privilege of interning with some of my illustration heroes; the fantastic Brett Helquist who did A Series of Unfortunate Events and the internationally famous Brad Holland, editorial illustrator who changed the face of art. Lucky me.
