Born in a sleepy little town in the hills of Pennsylvania, she always knew she wanted to be an artist. She got my first non-paying job, making drawings for my mom's 5th grade classroom bulletin boards, and yes, she also had her as a teacher!
Upon graduating from Penn State University with a degree in graphic design, she entered the corporate design world. As a senior designer and then art director at Hasbro Toys, she occasionally embellished collateral and product packaging with fun little drawings. More requests for these illustrations came her way and before she knew it, I was doing more drawing and less layout design. And I liked it!
