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 have been avoiding uploading to DeviantArt for a while because it's so heartbreaking finding every single thing I post stolen as an NFT. This is NOT DeviantArt's fault (in fact their NFT theft detection is the coolest thing, so glad they developed it), I just kind of needed to have my head in the sand for a while to deal with other stuff. At the end of 2021 half my town was wiped out by a wildfire, my husband and cats and myself had to evacuate and spend a few days wondering if we would still have a home. Our home was spared, but the experience was super duper traumatizing. I've spent the last month and a half dealing with the emotional fall out from that, but also working and training my husband to take over my Etsy shop for me! I just can not juggle commissions with running my online store, I'm super grateful he's here to take over for me. I'm still answering all messages though, he's eventually going to take over the whole thing! Point being, get ready for a wave of art!
