My Bio

I'm a Colorado native, tea addict, married to my awesome husband Preston, and beholden to the whims of my cat Loaf. I work full time as a freelance illustrator, and have a BFA with an emphasis in illustration. My art is mostly digital painting (Photoshop plus Wacom tablet), but I dabble in watercolor as well. I do not accept requests, trades, or collaborations, nor do I enter contests! Art is my full time job, so these commissions pay my living expenses. When I do get free time, I prefer to spend time with my family, outdoors, or to work on my own illustrations and personal art.

I open for commissions frequently on here, FA, tumblr and twitter, so keep an eye out if you are interested in a commission!

I'm so pleased that my first t-shirt and first pin designs have gone so well, thank you all who ordered from me to make those happen!  While I wait for the kittenee pins to be manufactured, I have reached out to a company who can help me create a kittenbee plush.  It's going to be quite a large endeavor for me, but I will open for pre-orders to help make it happen.  The process to getting to a finished kittenbee plush that's ready to sell will take quite some time, but keep an eye out in 2020 for that! I'm also changing up my Patreon to include a sticker tier!  I have a number of sticker designs already planned, but I'm open to feedback on w

It is with a heavy heart I have to announce that Loaf recently passed away…  Some of you already knew, but since I asked for donations for her recent vet bills, I thought it would be prudent to post an update publicly. The work we did prevented her from dying from anemia, prevented a blood clot from taking her, and prevented her from being blind in her final days.  But nothing we could do would stop her kidneys from eventually failing.  While I knew we were close to the final stage of kidney disease, I thought maybe we had another couple of weeks, or even a couple of months.  She declined very quickly, within the span of 36 hours.  As
