I'm a tiny Canadian illustrator, using a combination of precise lines, bright colours and subtle textures to create engaging images. I have created work for newspapers, magazines and children's books.

I grew up in a house in the woods on the Bruce Peninsula and spent my childhood reading, observing the local wildlife and climbing trees (and sometimes falling out of them. Sorry, Dad). These days I'm living in Oakville, ON and I still spend much of my time reading and observing the local wildlife, though I now prefer to enjoy trees with both feet on the ground. I graduated from Sheridan College's BAA Illustration program.
