I’m an illustrator and artist based in St. Louis, although my husband and I (and lately our cat) like to be other places, too.

I was a Navy brat born in Japan. Since the family move back to the States when I was two years old, I have lived in and traveled to many places within the U.S. and abroad. We (my husband and I, without the cat) recently returned to Japan and got to see the area where my parents lived when I was wee.

Some of the things I especially enjoy: companion animals (our cat and former cats and dogs and even a pet rat; and others’ beloved creatures, too), vegan food, clothes, gardens that I don’t have to maintain, dance (more often in performance than me these days), films, books (I am particularly fond of great children’s picture books, but I also read grown-up stories), and vintage stuff.
