As an animal lover and kid at heart, it's been my life goal to illustrate children's books. Little did I know that I would venture into becoming an author as well.

As a graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with a BFA in illustration and MFA in painting, I've enjoyed a career path within the publishing-printing-journalism fields. I've long believed that life is a story, with each journey or phase one chapter of the greater whole. How exciting that in writing my own next chapter, I'm also helping others tell their stories, too.

Lastly, please check out my illustrating business, Lellow Lolly, specializing in unique, heartwarming notecards, and other custom prints.
