Self portrait of the artist painting at a drafting table covered in art supplies.


I am an author and illustrator living in Austin, Texas. Art has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and children’s books are the perfect combination of art and storytelling. My illustrations are created with watercolors, gouache, pen & ink, and block printing, with the occasional touch of digital magic. When I’m not dreaming up characters and worlds for them to live in, you can find me spending time outdoors, perfecting my pizza making skills, or pursuing one of my (too) many hobbies.

I am a member of SCBWI and currently seeking representation.
