I am a freelance illustrator based in Oakland, CA. I live with my husband and twin 4 year- old daughters, Scarlett and Juniper. I studied illustration at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA and have been drawing and painting like crazy for clients (and for myself) ever since.
Clients include: Levi Strauss & Co (Global branding & marketing departments), McSweeney's, Passion Pictures NYC (for Linda McCartney Foods), The Chicago Reader, Women's Day Magazine, Curious Circus, Traver HMG (for PepsiCo), and others.

Demonstrated an “alla-prima” portrait painting style using oil paints. Prepares themed theatrical sets using live models and props. Provided one-on-one instruction of various rendering techniques.
2005-2010 Figure Drawing Instructor, Art Center for Kids
Designed and implemented a three-hour, seven-week course for children ages 9-13. The focus of the class was to progress students from drawing simple shapes to drawing expressively and accurately from a live model. Students also gained the ability to use various traditional rendering techniques. Class size: +/- 17.
