More Details About Me

My Background

When I was in three, I was diagnosed with autism.  I couldn't speak, so art became my way of communicating. I drew constantly. Drawing helped me learn to talk because my parents and teachers gave me words for the pictures. Through ABA, Social Stories, and much hard work, I have become an artist! Without autism, I would not have been obsessed with drawing and would not have gained the skills I have. I am proud of who I am and I like me as me.

My Medium

My favorite medium is creating directly in Adobe Illustrator.  It is the most efficient way for me to create a picture.  I love the ease of adding light, shading and depth.  It also reminds me of how much fun I had working with Maureen Clark, my graphic arts teacher in high school.  She taught me so much!

My Inspiration

My inspirations are the animated films and TV series, and the storybooks that I grew up with. Some of my favorites are Disney, Hayao Miazaki, Don Bluth, Ken Sugimori, William Steig, Dr. Seuss, Maurice Sendack, Dav Pilkey, Mark Brown, Mercer Mayer, Chris Sanders, and Terryl Whitlatch and Eric Carle.
