Hello! I am a freelance illustrator and art educator currently living in Portland, Maine. I work primarily on editorial, book and mural commissions using acrylic, watercolor and ink based media. As an educator I have created workshops with the Portland Museum of Art and worked on various community projects. 

I attended the Philadelphia high school for the Creative and Performing Arts with a focus in illustration, spent a semester of my undergrad at the New York Studio Residency Program, have a BFA from The Maine College of Art in Illustration, attended a two month art residency in Ballyvaughan, Ireland and recently graduated with my Master of Arts in Teaching Degree from the Maine College of Art.

Clients include: Portland Trading Co., Pinecone and Chickadee, The Portland Phoenix, Quiet Tide Goods, Maine College of Art and Demont and Associates.
