Born and raised in California, I spent a lot of time growing up drawing (at Disneyland of all places!) until I started working there. I began doing portraits and caricatures on the spot in 2003, pursuing that for a year and a half before moving to Trader Joe’s to become an in-store artist.

In 2006, my husband and I moved to Oregon where I continued to be the artist for the local TJ’s until 2014 when we moved to Washington, to begin to pursue our dreams, him as a therapist and me as a self-representing artist.
