FREELANCE ILLUSTRATOR

Hi! I am a freelance illustrator living in the Pacific Northwest that specializes in mixed media portraits for advertising, editorial and celebrity illustration.

I have always been surrounded and inspired by structure, form and function. I was born and raised in New York City where I attended the High School of Music and Art (Harlem). I have a BFA from Parsons School of Design and studied art at The School of Visual Arts, Cooper Union, and The Art Students League.

Growing up in Manhattan the daughter of two architects, I grew up surrounded by art. My Harvard-trained father worked for Richard Meier, and a Frank Stella hung in our living room. My father took me to see Claus Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, Louise Nevelson, Red Grooms and Louise Bourgeois shows in SOHO when I was a child.

My paintings, drawings and portraits, some 3-D constructions made from cardboard, have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The New York Times Sunday Magazine, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, TIME magazine, andThe Wall Street Journal amongst many others. I’ve also done commercial illustration work for companies like The Gap, MTV, Pottery Barn, Old Navy, Barney’s New York, and Sephora.

The paper relief piece I made out of two 8.5” x 11” pieces of paper for 
The Season of Spring exhibit at The Flower Pepper Gallery in LA 
opens March 1, 2014 up until April 4th.
