Verified identity


I am a professional illustrator of books, magazines, posters and other print material for children and adults. I create linocut prints with digital color in my yellow studio and get my best ideas while cycling the nature paths of Toronto. My art has been commissioned by clients in North America and the UK. In addition to commissioned illustration, I am working on writing and illustrating my own stories for children and playing around with digital portraiture on the ipad.

I was thrilled to be included in the January 2020 issue of Creative Boom magazine's list of "20 exciting illustrators to follow in 2020!" I especially love illustrating festivals, folktales, maps, tarot cards and anything spiritual or symbolic. My art has appeared on t-shirts, posters, signage, products, games, a tv commercial and a bus. If variety is the spice of life, I am truly blessed with my linocut technique that allows me to work in both hand-made and digital media.
