I have always loved to draw! As a young artist, my teachers would catch me doodling stories about my pet hamster going on adventures in my notebooks for class. Those doodles made me understand the importance of story. I love to create meaningful and narrative driven characters.
I always knew that I wanted to be an artist as a child and by the age of 9, I knew I was going to go to art school. What I didn't know was that Hammie couldn't live long enough to come with. Luckily enough, I was given the G.I. Bill so that I could afford to attend art school. I have a BFA from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. I majored in Illustration and minored in Communication Design. After graduating, I was searching for a path to learn more and still use my skillsets.
Not a Robot:
When I'm not arting it up, I enjoy needle felting, miniature building, rollerskating, ice skating in the winter, going to bookstores, antique shopping, spending time with my pets, and just enjoying nature! I sometimes work from home in my colorful office and a cat and dog next to me.
Proof that I'm 100% human shown below!
