Speaker Email:


I’m an illustrator, painter, and author whose work has found a home in children’s publishing, editorial illustration, and fine art galleries. I love experimenting with traditional materials and use an array of media including gouache, colored pencil, ink, and cut paper.

My work aims to celebrate small ordinary moments, often hinging on magical realism. While I wouldn’t say I’m a brave person, I love all things spooky and mysterious. My favorite projects allow me to grow and challenge my own creative habits, while illuminating an author’s words. Currently, I’m working on a series of my own picture books as well as technique books for other illustrators.

Presentation Description:
I love sharing workshops, presentations, and resources with other illustrators and authors. I'm best suited to presenting to adults rather than kids, even though I love children's books! My focus is usually on the artwork - I work traditionally in gouache, colored pencil, and water soluble crayons. 

I've taught workshops on creative play, building images through intuition, narrative illustration, gouache painting, animal textures, puppet building, and more.
