I have always loved to draw ever since I was a little girl. I have also always loved children's books. I am grateful for a mom who loved to read to me.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration from Brigham Young University and started illustrating as a freelance illustrator a year later. Since then, I have created artwork for 16 books along with children's magazines, charities, educational materials, religious materials and theater playbills. I love drawing and learning every day. I enjoy working in a number of mediums including acrylics, digital- Photohop and Painter, charcoal, pastels and watercolor.
I live in Utah with my two very artistic little girls and graphic designer husband. One of my favorite things to do is teach an art class for my girls and other neighorhood kids. I love seeing the beautiful artwork they create!
