My Story

As a child, I was captivated by the beauty of animation- lines drawn on a page that were strung together to create life.  It was breathtaking and magical all in one moment. 

I strive to re-create that magic with my paper art and storytelling.  To make something unexpected.  To craft a moment that makes you pause. 

Whether it’s through an unsual story twist,  a pop-up unfolding before your eyes, or tilting your head to see a paper suclpture from another angle, I believe in turning ordinary paper into something extraordinary. 

Fun Facts About Me!

HOME

While I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, I currently call Los Angeles, California home.

EDUCATION

I attended the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts and have studied illustration at Art Center College of Design.

DISCOVERING PAPER

While learning to draw and paint, I discovered my affinity for paper through pop-up books.

PAST WORK

Before deciding to become an independent artist, I interned at DreamWorks Animation and the Walt Disney Company.  I also founded Motivarti– an organization dedicated to providing mentorships for aspiring artist trying to get into the animation industry.
