Hello! I'm very excited to meet you all! My husband and I moved to the bay area in late 2008 to chase our dream careers. I studied illustration at WashU in St. Louis and currently telecommute as an artist for a small software company.
I very much enjoy thinking about how the art I make connects with its audience, even if that audience is just me! :)
I'm inspired every day by a great many types of art: children's book illustration, game concept art, knitting colorwork and cables, toy design, fashion sketches, comics and graphic novels...too many to pin them all down. Lately, I have been most fascinated by drawings that communicate simply but with great specificity.
I want to be around other people that love to draw! I miss the inspired atmosphere of being around other artistic people, and I'd especially love to get back together with other artists in a casual, low-stress way.
I love this group! It is the perfect no-stress environment to chat and draw with people of many different levels and backgrounds.
