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.
