I reflect on arbitrary thoughts that weave through my mind intermittently in my life. These recurring daydreams are the main inspiration behind my work. In between illustration and printmaking, I […]

I am a published artist with works in three different books I have volunteered teaching children art. I paint, draw, and illustrate. My favorite style of illustration is pointillism in pen and […]
