I am a singer/songwriter and illustrator based in Los Angeles. 

My work is guided by a lifelong fascination with songs and stories from all over the world- both old and new. I studied New Genres at San Francisco Art Institute (BFA 2003) and Illustration at the Pacific Northwest College of Art (2015). I grew up in a folkie music community in California with aspirations to be a painter like Helen Frankenthaler and a soprano with a guitar like the one in Anne Sexton’s poem “The Fury of Guitars and Sopranos”.

In addition to freelance illustrating, I am a teaching artist at the Brentwood Art Center in Los Angeles.

I am a proud member of SCBWI(Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators), We Need Diverse Books, BMI,  and Women Who Draw.
