I've written and illustrated a story of ten cats and a mouse designing in a historic workshop to support historic preservation projects. My purpose is to create art that is charming and full of personality just like the cats, and also to inspire young people to pursue their dreams through entrepreneurship. As an artist and professional in the field of historic preservation, I've combined my passion of working with historic buildings and bringing to life creative art projects in Shop Annapolis Cats. I grew up in Annapolis, inspired by all the exceptional colonial architecture, then attended the University of San Diego where I received a B.A. in history. Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay drew me back home again after graduation. I've recently taken Open Studies courses in illustration at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
