Currently based out of Atlanta, I grew up in a multicultural family and spent much of my life traveling as a military brat. It was overseas in Germany at a young age that I fell in love with my first taste of fantasy in the collected stories of the Grimms Brothers and Hans Christian Andersen.
A creative mom encouraged me to get into crafts at a young age. I experimented with everything from making my own pop-up books to friendship bracelets and crochet. In my adult years, I rediscovered crafting as a great way to de-stress (and to make a good bit of pocket change!) A good thing, too, or I would've been buried by all of the products of my little experiments!
introduced me to mask-making, I found my poison and became addicted to leathercrafting!
I’ve earned three degrees, a BA in English, a BA in Studio Art, and an MA in Arts Administration. I could never choose between my love of writing, of illustration, and for helping other artists.
Nowadays, my first book, Angelic Visions
, is out on the shelves of a bookstore near you! I also keep a blog
dedicated to giving advice and inspiration to other artists (along with sneak peeks of my latest works).
