About

Hi! I'm a 36-year-old artist, writer, and naturalist. I live in an off-grid tiny house "cabin" in the Arkansas Ozarks with my husband Ryan. I enjoy watching wildlife, reading, and of course drawing! You can read more about my art process below.

Every penny of profit from the sale of my artwork goes towards Ripples conservation projects, such as purchasing native plants that support wildlife, trail/game cameras, and more. Ripples is a personal project about living our lives in a way that helps both people and planet. Check it out and thank you for supporting us by purchasing a greeting card or print!

Art Process

(2021) I draw everything by hand on drafting film (Grafix Dura-Lar) using a mixed media process involving pencil, ink, Prismacolor Premier and Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils and Pan pastels. I don't enjoy creating art digitally and prefer the feel of traditional art mediums, but I do use the open-source editing program GIMP when necessary to fix a mistake or scanning issue.

Latest Work

Here are a couple of my new greeting card designs! (New designs may not yet be available for sale) While I no longer take commissions, my past commissions include: a colorful piece for the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks volunteer award ceremony; a black & white logo for an elder care company; illustrations for the children's book A Sheltie's Tale by Len White; and pet portraits like the one of Harry above.
