When I was little, my favorite pages of any coloring book were the blank endpapers. There, I could draw whatever stories I dreamed up. When I got bigger, I studied art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and science teaching at Antioch New England. At the 2019 NESCBWI Spring Conference, I won both the R. Michelson Galleries Emerging Illustrator Award and a Peter Davis Emerging Artist Scholarship. In 2017, I was honored to work with author/illustrator Ashley Wolff in the NESCBWI 4×4 Mentorship Program. Teresa Kietlinski at Bookmark Literary Agency represents my work.
