"I'm a designer and illustrated the children's books 'I Once Had a Chimpanzee’ and ‘The Tale of Jessie the Highland Cow.'"

I live in Glasgow with my Scottish husband. I seven years of design education and nine years working in the design field including illustrating and publishing children's books my father-in-law writes. Together we have published the books ‘A Highland Boyhood in Ardnamurchan’, ‘I Once Had a Chimpanzee’ and ‘The Tale of Jessie the Highland Cow’. I earned an MA in Design at University of Leeds studying Graphic Design, Marketing and Sustainable Design in 2013. In 2012, I moved to Scotland after working in New Zealand for over a year where I met my Scottish husband. Before arriving in New Zealand, I spent a month in American Samoa volunteering. I am originally from California where I studied Graphic Design, Photography, Art and Art History at San Diego State University. I love the Scottish accent and all the words Scottish people use. I love hearing 'wee' in every sentence and being called 'hen'. I like to visit the castles in Scotland and go on walks in the countryside. I even like haggis and whiskey now.
