After 15 years in the engineering field I returned to college to pursue my dream......Illustration! I completed my BFA in Illustration with a minor in Painting in 2011 and my Illustration MFA in 2013. While attending classes I worked part-time as a Veterinary Assistant and continued to help out at the clinic until we moved out of the area. I also taught college illustration courses for a few years, but I am now primarily a freelance illustrator. I also dabble in fine art and occasionally do commissions as time allows. Although I have a small pony and a pony mule I miss riding desperately, and do hope to one day have a riding horse again.
