I am an avid doodler determined to hold onto my childhood imagination and continue to incorporate it into my artwork. With my work, I enjoy exploring ways to tell stories through visual imagery and discovering new ways to mix different mediums. My work often includes imaginative, surreal, and whimsical qualities, encouraging viewers to also make use of their imaginations.
I am a Minnesotan illustrator and graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in illustration. I have gained illustration experience doing work for NOTA Literary & Fine Arts Magazine as well as local independent publishers. Recently I spent five months working with Art Relief International, a non-profit art outreach program based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. During my time there, I learned how to use art for healing and that art is a universal language. I currently teach drawing classes in the Twin Cities through the Young Rembrandt’s program, a curriculum for teaching the next generation of artists. I am always up for new challenges and am available for freelance work.
