About

I like to make up things...

​Hello! I am a freelance illustrator-author currently based in California. I value imagination and creativity in my work and in the world around me. I love building a narrative from the first sketchy nuggets of an idea that travel out of my head and into my sketchbook. I also enjoy creating unique color palettes to help tell stories. I value simplicity coupled with strong ideas- something I strive for with all of my work. I primarily work in screen print but I love playing around with all kinds of media! 

I have just completed my Masters in Children's Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art in England. I hold a BA in English and a BA in Journalism from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
