curriculum vitae

I was born and raised in Abilene, Texas, and fled to Austin as soon as I could. I graduated from Southwestern University in 2012 with a BFA in Painting.

I celebrate and illustrate strong, adventurous women with an independent spirit: the touring cyclist peeing in the desert, the face-tattooed, river tubing Juggalette, the powerlifter who proudly flaunts her thunder thighs.

I work with traditional and digital media and am open to freelance illustration and licensing queries. 

I enjoy the process of planning and designing elegant interfaces for digital products, and am especially inspired by companies such as Dropbox and Shopify that incorporate illustrations as a central focus of their look and feel.
