I am a graduate of Ringling School
of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. I received my
B.F.A., with a major in illustration, in May of 1997.
I originally decided to go to art school because more
then anything I wanted to be an animator and work for
Disney. I applied to Disney and other studios many
times in the years that followed Ringling, working a
variety of jobs such as waitressing, acting, temping and
aiding at a Middle School.
I have currently put my animation goals on hold and
have decided to pursue another dream of mine;
illustrating children's books. This past summer I have
been working on my first book: Yen
Shei and the American Bonsai.
I currently live and
work in Eastern Massachusetts with my husband, our dog
Tolkein and our cat Newman.
