I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I attended the School of Visual Arts in NYC and received my MFA in illustration in 2000. I also attended the Kansas City Art Institute where in 1998 I  received my BFA, also in illustration. I have had the pleasure of being involved in numerous plush shows across the country and beyond. I’ve also enjoyed seeing my work in print. Besides creating plush for shows, commissions and magazines, I enjoy working on other sewing projects, making things for my kids and working on my yearly Halloween display. I also can’t leave a fabric store without spending way to much money. Some of the things that inspire me are old cartoons, vintage ads, old toys, antique malls, the macabre, fabric, poster art, Halloween and anything circus related. I currently reside in Kansas City, Missouri with my husband, daughter, son, one neurotic Pomeranian and one needy Yorkie.
