I am an illustrator specializing in food and travel, hand-lettering, & surface design. My illustrations are an extension of my perpetual curiosity and radiate whimsy, dreaminess, and fluidity.  My work has been used for print ads, editorials, books, stationery products, & textiles. 

I also have a passion for teaching. Helping others find and express the creativity that resides inside of them is at the core of what brings me joy. Most recently I have been teaching budding artists and designers at Cornish College of the Arts and IGIMO Art Station in Seattle.
