I was born on tax day 1977 in Dover, Deleware and grew up on Long Island, NY. I went to college at Cazenovia from 1995-1999 and graduated with two degrees in Commercial Illustration. An Associates of Applied Science and a Bachelor of Fine Arts. An amusing little tid bit about my major. By the time I graduated, there were only 8 students (my year) who were left IN the major, the rest having switched out to Graphic Design.
Currently, I reside in Nashua, NH with my Husband and Daughter.
I didn't start Dragon Press Graphics as soon as I graduated. I waited a bit, not sure I was ready. My dream, after all, was to do Comic Books. After attending some anime conventions and being obsessed with their "Artists' Alley", I took a chance and tried it out for myself. That was back in 2001.
Now I average about 4 conventions a year. Sometimes more, sometimes less depending on finances and other circumstances. At one such convention, I had my fateful run in with The Brobdingnagian Bards, and I started my first online Comic Strip.
My Current Dream is to be able to work from home, completely enmeshed in Dragon Press Graphics (and not a 9-5 job on a manufacturing floor) and to work on quite a few Comic Pieces I already have planned.
My strength in Medium is Black and white Inkwork. My weakness is Paint.
My strength in subject matter is Photographs or Fantasy work. My weaknesses are Portraits and Science Fiction.
