Hey there!

I’m always looking for something new to try out, and am the go-to person when you have an unusual job that doesn’t fit most artists’ skillsets. I enjoy the challenge of exploring new materials and methods, as well as rediscovering dying arts.

About the artist

Art was a childhood pastime that lead me to the Oakland School for the Arts’ Theater Design & Production curriculum. After relocating to Chicago, art became a hobby while I worked in IT as a Linux SysAdmin to pay the bills; in my free time I authored comics, developed video games for PC and Nintendo DS, built websites, sculpted statuettes, and made countless personal and commissioned illustration works.

In 2015 I ditched the financial security blanket that was IT to break into art full-time. I’ve also taught videogame art/animation as well as robotics as a volunteer for the Chicago Public Schools District, as a fulltime teacher at Magical Minds Studios, and via my own art livestream on Twitch with Discord for tracking assignments.

Otherwise you’ll find me listening to Swing-era music, keeping a massive garden in the warm months, watching shows like Star Trek TNG, playing video games, and enjoying calm days at home with my husband who I collaborate with on many projects. I also fly RC airplanes, do my own automotive work, and relish in tidiness.
