About Me

My Background

I live in Dover, Florida (Tampa Bay area), and I lived in Wisconsin half of my life.  My graduate degree is in animation and visual effects from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA.  While attending AAU, I mostly studied 3D animation texture/lighting, matte painting, and compositing.  My focus is in 3D animation cg texture and lighting, and Visual Effects.  I love the magic  of transforming a scene into a place of emotion and the chance to captive an audience.  When I'm not doing artwork, I love spending time with my family.  My husband and I have two energetic little girls, and we all enjoy the outdoors.  I have a farm with horses and enjoy riding.  My pets are part of the family, we have 4 dogs and 2 cats.  Along with artwork, pet care has forever been one of my primary interests. My husband and I own two successful pet food retail stores, called Munchies Natural Pet Foods.  My life is dynamic and it's everything I dreamed of, I consider myself very blessed.
