I am an illustrator, writer and designer located in the Melbourne, VIC, Australia area.  
I have 20+ years of experience in:
     -  Illustration - Traditional & Digital
     -  Graphic Design - Print & Web
     -  Digital Design - Website/App Development
     -  Branding - Development & Consultation
     -  Marketing - Brand Coordination & Social Media Strategy
I got my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco (2005).  While, going to school, I was immersed into the city’s arts, music and fashion industries so I got my start doing creating album covers, show posters and merchandise for fellow artists.
In 2008, I co-founded Blooming Footprint, a brand development firm, of which I am the Creative Director.  It is based in Denver, Colorado with a team of eight, we handle all branding and marketing needs for musicians, music festivals and venues.
In 2010, I came to visit Australia for a month, and then unexpectedly fell in love with it and one Australian in particular, my husband Paul.  We got married the next year at Burning Man, and then I immigrated here and we now live in Melbourne with our two kids.
Currently, I am shifting my focus to establish myself as an author/illustrator of picture books.  As a form of therapy, enjoyment and processing, I have written and illustrated about a dozen books over the years inspired by the different phases of my life.  In 2021 and 2022, I  participated in the KidLitVic event.  I am also a long-time follower of SCBWI and became a member in 2021.
