I was born in Overland Park, Kansas and continue to live here with my husband and snuggly cat. Previously a designer for Hallmark, I am now a full time illustrator based in the suburbs of Kansas City. My specialties include botanical and cute illustration, hand-lettering, and surface design. You can typically find me in my sunny studio playing with gouache and my iPad to create charming, colorful, hand-crafted pieces.
I fell in love with art licensing after working retail at Paper Source where I was exposed to fantastic stationery and gift product. Afterward, I had an amazing experience as a greeting card designer for Hallmark Cards where I worked on everything from Father’s Day to Baby and Wedding. I have since left to pursue a freelance illustration career where I hope to collaborate with a wide range of markets and help bring their products to lifeView Full Bio
