I grew up in an earth sheltered home near Apex NC. As a child I spent time reading books and examining bumble bees in the front yard. My family didn’t have a tv, so I drew the creatures I saw in nature and ones I imagined up.
Later, I moved to Ohio where I graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Industrial Design. Before becoming an artist, I worked as an artist and illustrator since 2010.
My work portrays animals and people finding humor and strength in their situations. I try to evoke the way I saw the world as a child while sometimes tackling big/ scary concepts like habitat loss, global warming, and cultural expectations.
