I'm a Canadian illustrator living with my two young daughters on the island of Martha’s Vineyard (USA), to which I arrived several years ago as a deckhand on a cargo ship delivering cobblestones from Portugal. I'm particularly interested in editorial assignments on social issues, health, political, financial and scientific concepts, as well as children's publishing. I have illustrated for repeat clients at prominent blogs, art magazines, universities and corporations, and have won some awards.
