Profile

My fascination with children’s books developed when I was quite young. The inspiration for this interest was my Great Aunt Opal Wheeler, a prolific writer of mid-century children’s books. Aunt Opal would gift us with the full children’s book list from her publisher, Dutton Book each Christmas. That was it, I was hooked. After graduating from Elmira College and some time at the Dial Press and Simon & Schuster, I established my own freelance illustration business. That was more than 75 illustrated books ago. Along the way, I took advantage of some great opportunities and worked on a variety of projects for many clients in wonderfully diverse markets. Keeping in touch with the City Mouse/Country Mouse lifestyle I love, I currently divide my time between my home studios in Manhattan and Ballston Spa, New York State’s first Free Trade town.
