I grew up just outside of Chicago, and moved to Los Angeles in 2006 to marry an old high school friend. We live with our feisty and adorable young daughter, our sweet old blind dog, and our pointy little cat. When I'm not making toys I knit and crochet, cook ridiculous meals, and hike in LA county's surprisingly extensive wilderness.

Beyond the work available in my shop, I'm always interested in discussing commissions, especially pet portraits.
