After a number of years focusing on graphic design work, I’ve rediscovered the joy of art-making through inky doodles, printmaking, and illustrating new children’s books. I’m very excited to announce that my next picture book, Chick Chat, will publish with NorthSouth Books in early 2021.
I love creating visual stories (and characters) with heart and humor that the viewer can relate to emotionally—whether it’s over the span of a 32-page picture book or through a single illustration.
For drawing, I work almost exclusively in the digital realm using an art tablet and stylus with my computer, or with an Apple Pencil on an iPad. For color work, I usually combine digital drawing, inking, and pastel with traditional watercolor and other natural media. And, sometimes I work all-digitally.

My book projects wish list (in addition to picture books): simple, chewable baby books, board books, illustrating young graphic “novels” (or chapter books), writing and/or illustrating creative non-fiction for 5- to 8-year-olds.
