I have an inexhaustible passion for drawing and painting. I love the imperfections and human touch that come with hand-made artwork, and seeing how these elements blend with new kinds of media and new ideas. I became an illustrator after graduating from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA in 2008. I'm so excited to be part of the tradition of art, where I always get to explore new ways of expanding and stretching my work through new challenges and collaborations!

I currently live in Los Angeles, CA with my twin daughters, Scarlett and Juniper (who often sneak into my artwork), and my husband and fellow artist Mike Bertino. Also, recently I can finally do 7 push-ups (in a row)!
