About the Artist

Artist Bio

I am an illustrator and painter who loves creating whimsical, conceptual, and colorful illustrations to convey thought-provoking feelings and messages.

I am also a parent. Drawing while parenting keeps me sane, and it’s one more way to talk to my two beautiful girls, especially when they don’t feel like listening.

This series, In Lunch with Love, began as drawings created on Post It Notes, which I tucked into my two daughters’ lunch boxes every day for 12 years. This project is about all the big days and many little things that make a family, and make a life. In Lunch With Love is a reminder that our children have the most important place in our hearts, souls, and funny bones, no matter where they are.
