Hey there!  I draw quirky, cheerful illustrations of forests, text, abstraction, desserts, animals, and absurdism, and then make them into prints and cards from home.

 

I've always loved to read, so my abstract paintings frequently incorporate tiny handwriting hidden within the images — like a fun little reward for those who look closely!

I graduated from SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design) in 2008 with a B.F.A. in illustration, and in 2009 won an Honorable Mention in Savannah’s Telfair Art Fair. In 2010 I moved to NYC, where I spent
7 years selling my work in craft markets to art collectors from all over the world (including actor Adam Sandler and writer Elizabeth Wurtzel)!

 

My whimsical drawings have since appeared in The
Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, and on Time Out New York’s blog.


In 2017 I moved back to Savannah; I now work as a freelance artist/illustrator and am thrilled to be back amongst the live oaks and Spanish moss.
