SCBWI Logo Contest Winner

When it came time to rebrand the Inland-Northwest chapter of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, my logo was selected to be the new face of the community.

Painting for the Carousel of Smiles

Eventually this fishie will be mounted on one of the carousel’s many panels, but for now he resides in the organization studio to give the horses encouragement while they undergo restoration.


Collaborative Projects


I’m excited to announce I’ve partnered with Funatomy to bring their next project to life! I won’t be sharing any pictures until closer to the release date, but I can tell you it’s been an amazing journey and I can’t wait for this story to officially join the world!
