My art merges my love for animals with personalities similar to our own. While I start with a sketch or have an idea of what a character will look like, their personalities tend to emerge on their own through the process of painting or sculpting. My style is whimsical with a light-hearted feel.
As a child, I loved drawing and creating characters from found objects. My creativity lead me to a career in Graphic Design. After years of creating layouts and marketing material, I chose to stay home with my children. We spent our days playing and reading stories (which often featured animals) which inspired me to begin illustrating and creating quirky characters of my own.
