I love to entertain with my art.

I am a professional artist with a whimsical style. I have a great big love of illustration and cartooning. Story and humor is very important. If I can tell a story within a single image then I've done my job well.

I am a longtime member of Seattle based Cartoonists Northwest (CNW) and an Associate Member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). I'm experienced in licensed and proprietary projects.

In 2002 I won CNW's "Golden Toonie" award, their Cartoonist of the Year.

I created Gutsy McDivot and his friends Sandy and Burnie for "Fairway Solitaire" at Big Fish Games.

A former in-home caregiver, I began my professional art career designing T-shirts. I created designs for everything from Schools & Custom Designs to Garfield & Looney Tunes.

From there I made the leap to digital games. I've worked on titles from Harry Potter & Rugrats to Hidden Object Games and my favorite project Fairway Solitaire featuring McDivot & Friends.
