Personal Quote: "This is me and this is you."

My work is inspired by by the true strangeness of nature. I draw on myths from around the world to capture the delight of the unusual and unexpected. I love taking something everyday and making it fantastical.

When I’m not making strange little creatures, I work as a freelance illustrator. I graduated from San Francisco State University with a BA in Fine Art. I currently live on the coast in California.
