I knew I wanted to be an artist after I decorated my first class bulletin board at age six.
I’m inspired by life. Kids running, playing and giggling and the silly dog that keeps trying to join in all the activity. My characters evolve mostly from the child in me and not the adult. It is a place of innocence, honesty and sincerity.
I earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. After college I began working as an artist in the humor department at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City, Missouri. After 12 years and a lot of greeting cards I ventured out on my own. I am now creating and licensing my designs for all kinds of fun products.
I wake up excited each day about drawing the next character or telling the next story. I still can not imagine anything else I’d rather do!
