I have over 8 years of book design experience. I've worked at HarperCollins on interior layout design of lifestyle books, biographies and cookbooks and at Macmillan Children's books designing full package picture books, chapter books and YA novels. I love the outdoors, baking, making all kinds of things, and I especially love doing work for socially conscious organizations. I'm also an illustrator, specializing in watercolor, and nature in particular. My illustrations have been in numerous books, published by both large and small publishers. My most recent book is Beautiful Songbirds, which features 30 of my watercolors.
Worked on covers and interiors for Feiwel & Friends, Henry Holt, Square Fish and Swoon Reads
