As a published, professional illustrator and author of children’s literature, I am always looking for projects that will not only challenge me, but further my rather enjoyable career.
I am proficient in Adobe Photoshop, and I draw directly on the computer screen using an Intuos 4 tablet and pen.
I also create illustrations in traditional mediums, like watercolor, acrylic, or colored pencil and I have been known to mix the three very effectively!
Originally a fine artist, I made the switch to illustrating children’s literature in 2003 and I’ve never looked back. As a child, I had very little access to Picture Books, so I’ve had a blast acquainting myself with them as an adult.
I was born in Florida, but I love mountains and cool weather, go figure! I look forward to fall most of all, with it’s colors, smells and festivals. Autumn fills me with a happiness that has been dormant throughout the long, hot summer. I suddenly come alive again!
Although illustrating is my life, I also teach art and mentor up-and-coming illustrators and authors.
Thank you for taking a look around. I promise to do my very best in providing you with information that can help further your writing/illustrating career. I wish you every success and look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy!
