About the Artist

In LAI graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University in Illustration (B.S.) in 2012.

Growing up, I loved reading, soaking in stories and allowed myself to sink into them. The result was a drive to create visual narratives to share with others. I hope to not only share scenes of what the imagination can create, but tell a story. One of my series for example, the Fear Series, tells the story of a young girl and her encounters with Fear.
