American, born in Tokyo, Los Angeles raised, some time in the Bay Area, some time in Massachusetts, some time in Cape Town, now in Portland, Oregon.  

For illustration work I’m represented by Art Department. I’ve been doing a lot of YA fiction book covers lately and I love it.

Other projects: Volumes Volumes publishes art books and printed ephemera; Oregon Drawing Club is a women-led drawing group co-founded in 2015. I have a daily practice of drawing plants.

Clients include Airbnb, Algonquin, Field Scout, Glamour Magazine, HarperCollins, Lucky Peach, Medium, Nike Women, NORTH, Penguin Random House, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, Studio Jelly, Umpqua Bank, Wieden+Kennedy, and many others.

My art work has been supported by Signal Fire Arts and the Regional Arts and Culture Council.
