I am an illustrator and visual artist based in Vancouver, British Columbia. I look to the natural world and everyday elements of our urban environment for inspiration. I enjoy the challenge of observation and the process of documentation and transformation into a new creation. Because reality is so varied and surprising, there is lots of room for imaginative interpretation.

There is often a story behind my images and this story is very important in Picture Books. I have started exploring this extension of image making and storytelling more deeply by writing and illustrating my own children’s picture book based on my background in biology.
