I was born in Illinois, and I grew up in western Canada (Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta). I have always loved drawing and painting, but didn’t think I could make a career out of it, so I studied interior design at the University of Manitoba and graduated in 1985. After working a short period as an interior designer, I decided I’d never be happy unless I gave illustration a shot. I enrolled in the illustration associate degree program at Pratt Institute in 1989. I have worked as a freelance illustrator since graduating in 1991.
