I'm an Author Illustrator focusing on picture and board books. I've worked collaboratively with authors, editors, and art directors from major publishers like Random House and Little Brown to develop illustrations that bring manuscripts to life. My artwork has been described as colorful, vibrant, and exuberant by Kirkus reviews. I've had 8 years of professional experience with clients big and small from everything to full length 32 page picture books to short and sweet 16 page board books. I've also worked as a graphic designer and animator for the past 8 years and I can design your Adult, YA or Middle Grade book cover, and create interior layout or animated trailers for picture books.
