Hello! I am an author/illustrator creating stories and art for children's books and graphic novels. I love timeless stories that linger and grow tendrils into your heart. And I love crafting worlds of fantasy, folklore, myth, and magic.
I live in Berkeley, CA with my husband, daughter and son. On our days off you'll find us making mischief in the garden and diving into waves in the ocean.
I'm a member of SCBWI and was a runner up for the Martha Weston Grant in 2016. I am currently writing and illustrating picture book for young children, and a graphic novel for young adults.
