I am an experienced commercial, editorial, and scientific illustrator. My strength lies in my versatility, my curiosity, and my love of the collaborative nature of freelance illustration. With a BFA in Commercial Illustration (with distinction) from California College of Arts and Crafts, an MFA in Scientific Illustration from the University of California at Santa Cruz, and eight years of experience in commercial illustration, I approach each project as an opportunity to get my hands dirty and become a subject matter expert in a new area. Each illustration is infused with the insight I have gained through researching the history, evolution, science, and market trends of my subject.

Within the parameters of every project, I find new experiences, and new ways to engage in a dialog with my clients to generate unique, exciting, and informed creative solutions to meet their needs. And with each project, I am again grateful to have pursued a career that continues to sustain my interests and fuel my passions.

As an avid supporter of sustainability, I dedicate a large percentage of my work to local Bay Area projects because I believe that living and working within my community is the best model for its continued success.
