About Me

aes headshot

I’m a freelance illustrator living in southwest Virginia with my loving husband¬†and a very loud little bird. My art is a combination of traditional ink drawing and digital watercolor that pays homage to the great masters of the Golden Age of Illustration. I have a passion for fairy tales, mythology, and folklore; I enjoy illustrating stories that continue to speak to generations of both children and adults.¬†When I’m not drawing I spend my time making jewelry, writing, and bird wrangling.
