Hi! I am a picture book illustrator with a flat, simple, and textured style. I seem to get inspired ideas when eating chocolate.

Overview

I usually start a project by designing characters that matches the client's description. Then once I get the manuscript, I will create small storyboards to get an over all feel for the layout and flow of a book. The small storyboards gives me the opportunity to play with text placement. Then I will create the roughs at a bigger size to see how it's all going together. Once those are approved I will go ahead and do the clean line work and finally the fully coloured illustrations.
