• I live in Roanoke, VA, nestled between the granddaddy Blue Ridge and Allegheny mountains. I have a BFA in drawing from Guilford College and am currently getting an MFA in Children’s Book Writing & Illustration from Hollins University. When I’m not creating a mess with my art, I am writing picture books and novels, and I like to wander in the mountains, rock climb, and attempt to garden.

    I enjoy painting in watercolor and drawing with cheap mechanical pencils.
