I live and work in a Kansas City suburb. A keeper of two cats, two dogs, a lovely garden, my bearded husband and one amazing daughter.

I have an appreciation for history, museums, all things in nature, reading, cooking and laughter. Day dreams include the Grand Canyon, writing + illustrating a children's book and lazy days in Keosauqua Iowa.

Inspiration and admiration include; Frida Kahlo, Sandy Skoglund, Charley Harper, Ed Emberley, Jon Klassen, Charles and Ray Eames, Cindy Sherman, Vivian Maier, and Sister Corita Kent.
