Bio

I'm an independent Illustrator and Graphic Designer born and raised in Wichita, KS. After trying out commercial design for about 6 years, I found that I was truly happiest working with not-for-profits and other clients who had a heart for making a difference in the lives of others. I quit my full time design job and started an independent one-woman-show and catered to non-profits, big and small, and smaller clients who, like me, were venturing off on their own and needed an identity boost on a budget. About two years later, I was hired part time by Trees for Life, a local not-for-profit, and while I started with illustration for their education program, have since ventured into everything from voiceover work to video editing. Quite the adventure!

In the end, my heart will always be firmly in the realm of illustration; computers may be my medium of choice, but I do my best not to let it erase the inevitable humanity in my work. Visual storytelling, whether through design or illustration, soundly punches me in the face, and I am grateful for the opportunity to explore and grow and learn more of this trade every day.
