I am an illustrator and creative magpie working out of my studio in San Diego, California. I also invest time as a volunteer art instructor, nurturing the creative growth of my two sprouts and those of the community.

I am a graduate of Art Center College of Design. My clients include Chronicle Books, Dutton Books, Marcel Wanders Studio, Boekie Boekie, Nickelodeon, and the Los Angeles Times. Places I have been born in, lived in, or/and worked are Canada, Holland, and Los Angeles but not in that order. In 2017,  I was also an SCBWI Mentorship recipient and SCBWI Portfolio Showcase Honoree.

Stuff I like includes taco shops, reading aloud, weird nature, and drawing in my car. I believe thoughtful process, attention to detail, experimentation, and collaboration lead to wonderful things.
