hello there

I'm a new mom of a sweet boy, a dog mom of two rescues, a military spouse, and a painter.
My days are full of adventure with a little one as we explore paradise in Hawaii! We are frequent beach goers, coffee shop lovers, and mango picking bikers. I've definitely got a little tan aloha baby who has a deep love for nature! Between daycare, naps, and bedtime breaks I surround myself with your adorable animals and creating pun-filled stories for kids.
  
Pet portraits came to my life naturally. I started offering them to friends and family for a holiday season and I never looked back. Since pursuing a full time career as a pet portrait artist in 2017, I have grown a deep appreciation for the craft. Not only do I get to sharpen my technical skills with every portrait, but I also get to have the most adorable muses when creating fur-ever gifts for their doting hooman parents. Win-win!
  
Children's books came to my life not so naturally. Post undergrad I wanted to pursue animation. I was readying
up a portfolio to (yet again) apply to school when we got our first military orders to move to a place without an animation program. Now, embracing the military life and it's constant hurdles, I adapted my animation dreams to find a
creative career in story telling. My books are filled with puns, endearing characters,
and a whole lot of color!

Pursuing a creative life is intensely fulfilling. I am overwhelmed with gratitude
every day with all the support you guys give me. Thank you for making this dream
a possibility. Thank you for supporting my family.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
