About me

I am a children's book author illustrator and creator of Meant for a Moment Designs and No Sleep Lots of Love. 


I work happily from my home studio in Crownsville, MD. My office assistants include one overly excited dog, two equally excitable little girls, and three cups of coffee. 


I enjoy creating art for board books, picture books, chapter books, graphic novels and middle grade novels. I am drawn to stories with humor and heart.

When not illustrating, I can be found refining my playdoh skills with my daughters, writing, or jogging. It is my dream to find a way to do all of these things at once . . . one day.


I can rarely be found sleeping and I am okay with that.​


My illustrations have been described as whimsical, playful, and quirky.
