About me

I am a children's book author illustrator and the artist behind 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 and two beautiful little girls. 


I enjoy creating art for board books, picture books, chapter books, and middle grade novels. 

When not illustrating, I can be found refining my playdoh skills with my daughters, writing, jogging, or drinking strong coffee. 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.
