I believe I've been blessed with a wonderful gift to express myself through art. It's my wish to entertain and create memories for children and families through my artwork.


As a kid I was always drawing, I found my inspirations from Warner Bros. and Disney animation, illustrators such as Bill Peet, Garth Williams, Norman Rockwell, N.C. Wyeth and the list could go on and on.

I studied illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design. While attending college I began working summers at Walt Disney World, growing up in Central Florida made that an easy decision for me. I eventually worked my way into the Disney art departments and for 23 years created character art for the studio tour, product development and created one of a kind and limited edition art for merchandise.

Today I call Cullman Alabama my home, I'm a freelance artist and illustrator and my main art interest include illustrating for children's literature, plein air painting and portraits.


If you have a question or a project you would like to talk about, feel free to reach out to me, I would love to hear from you!
