Hi! I am an illustrator and designer based in Richmond, VA. I have a particular interest in creating images that connect people more deeply to stories and experiences, especially those involving the natural world. A brief, incomplete, and growing list of things I love to capture: animals, people, music, science, history, and food.
I am currently the vice-chair of the board of Gallery5, and have served as co-chair of the Richmond Illustrators Club. I've shown work in local galleries, and taught at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. In addition to my freelance illustration work, I am the Associate Director of Design Services at the University of Richmond, and art direct University of Richmond Magazine and Richmond Law magazine. 
I have a B.F.A. in Communication Arts and Design from Virginia Commonwealth University, and attended programs at the Illustration Academy and Lorenzo di Medici Institute.
Clients include Saveur.com, Troegs Brewing, Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches, Capital Region Land Conservancy, Love and Radio, Richmond Magazine, Virginia Living Magazine, Venture Richmond, Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, Poplar Forest, Elevation advertising, JHI, Editor & Publisher magazine, and Richmond BizSense.​​​​​​​
