Hello there! I'm an artist from the small beach town of Sarasota, Fl. I graduated from Ringling College of Art & Design in 2007 and have been working as an in-house illustrator and freelancer ever since. I love painting nature and utilizing color palettes that echo the feel of my coastal home. My memories of turquoise waters and vivid green surroundings serve as great inspiration in my art. After working as an illustrator for nearly a decade at American Greetings (in Cleveland, Ohio) I decided to pursue my dream of moving to San Diego, CA where I currently reside. I enjoy flower filled walks in my historic South Park neighborhood, cookie-sampling, surfing, and watching the hummingbirds from my porch.
