Once upon a time...

Art and stories have been a part of my life since I was child. I'm blessed with a family of readers and appreciate or even talent for the arts. 
I went to work part time jobs in my late teens and after graduating due to it being the more "secure" route. After a while this was draining my energy, mental health, and certainly didn't leave much room for being creative. Providence intervened in an unexpected way. I suffered a head concussion that didn't allow me to go back to work or socialize in loud places. During this time, I decided to work from home (which had always appealed to me). I started an Etsy shop selling my art as gift items and did commission work. I found myself being drawn back to my love of stories and being a picture book illustrator. I didn't dive into it immediately. I researched for more than a year. I finally did my first book in May of 2022 and have worked with other up and coming authors! It clicked that THIS is what I want to do. I share my work and journey here with you. ❤️
