I am a freelance editorial artist and aspiring picture book author-illustrator. My favorite kind of storytelling prioritizes visual art and uses dramatic irony to hilarious effect. In my work with five and six year olds, I've seen nothing amuse a kid more than to know something a character doesn't know.
In my illustration, I use colored pencil, watercolor, and gouache. I love the momentum of the classic full page spread and the drama of the page turn. I also enjoy illustrating vignettes and character animations.
I'm a proud new graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design! I've also had an amazing experience working as a kindergarten and first grade after school teacher at the Croft School for the past two years.
I'm currently looking for representation by an illustration agency. I appreciate creative teams that offer great communication, critical feedback, and a love of humor.
