Starting from a young age, I loved SPACE - how it made me feel, the use of it, its colors and angles. Whether I was rearranging the furniture in my bedroom each week, or fantasizing about what an upstairs addition would look like on our house, I was always looking for new ways to change the space around me in ways that reflected my mood.
I later moved to New York City, where I lived for nearly 18 years. Living in a succession of tiny studio apartments, I started to adapt my desire for, but lack of, space to creating environments on paper.
Combining my love for color and details with the use of pattern, I create tiny "homes" for my illustrations to live within. Whether I'm wrapping an illustration in words or filling the page with bright color, I try to merge artwithmoodwithspace.
I now live in Austin, Tx where I finally have more than four walls to work with.
