Profile

Hi and thanks for stopping by. I've been illustrating since I was 3 years old. I sold my first drawing in 7th grade and realized that this was a path worth pursuing. I have produced works for 25 books for children, contributed to numerous magazines and print collateral as well as licensed products. I'm grateful that my whimsical style tends to attract like minded clients and projects that are fun. I'm grateful to have worked with some awesome clients including: The Smithsonian's National Zoo, American History Museum, Land's End, Harcourt, Running Press, World Health Organization, Johns' Hopkins University, Johns Hopkins Children's Center, Weber Shandwick and National Geographic Society, American Psychological Association - Magination Press among others. I have a degree from Virginia Commonwealth University and graduated in 1985 in the Communications Arts and Design program. The illustration, well, that came naturally to me outside of academia. VCU was invaluable in shaping and crafting how I am as an artist, however. After working as a graphic designer/art director, I made the leap to freelance illustration. Because of my graphic design background, I've been able to work with client's needs when it comes to awareness of text areas, deadlines and production problem solving. I moved from Baltimore, Maryland and reside now in Costa Mesa, California with my two rescue cats who assist in my studio. I’m interested in working on all types of things from murals, signage, more books, advertisting...whatever is fun – count me in! Let’s get started.
