I am a freelance illustrator currently based in Utah. I am passionate about creating illustrations that possess and radiate with an aura and bewitchment of their own; bringing them to life and allowing them to exist more fully off the page. My work is inspired by small aspects of magic in fairy tales in daily life, by the emotions and desires that are masked and left unspoken, and from my massively unending consumption of books. My illustrations are created to make you feel, to pause from your average routine, and to consider a new, different way of thinking.
I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2 Dimensional Studies at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. When I’m not working on commissioned work I am juggling a variety of personal illustration and story projects. In the off chance I’m not working on art, I am usually found outside with my husband and cat either looking for bees, bones, or both.
