"My goal for every illustration is to use the character's eyes to really engage the viewer. That is, by far, my favorite challenge. "
I am an illustrator and gallery artist currently living in Louisiana, USA. Working primarily with chalk pastel, she loves creating illustrations for the horror and fantasy genre, often with a dark romanticism undertone and Pre-Raphaelite influence. My work has been published in Spectrum Fantasy Art Annual 22, 23, and 24, Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, Infected by Art, and others. Clients include Boom! Publishing, Hackle TV, ArtOrder, and more. I've done licensed work for Jim Henson Company, Adult Swim, Netflix, Focus Features, Archie Comics, etc.
