I'm an illustrator of many books for kids including Orangutanka: A Story in Poems by Margarita Engle (HOLT, Spring '15) and The Pickwicks' Picnic by Carol Brendler (CLARION, Fall '17)
I love drawing nature, animals, and working on projects that require a little bit of research!
Before transitioning to a full time freelance career, I was a lead artist at FableVision Studios for nearly 10 years. My work there has contributed to multiple honors, including the graphic novel Zebrafish (2008), a Junior Library Guild selection, and the Ranger Rick's Tree House App for the National Wildlife Federation, which won a 2013 Parents' Choice Award!
I currently live just south of Boston with my illustrator husband Keith Zoo, our fluffy orange cat Timmy, and our newest and spikiest addition Lemon the hedgehog.

I do school visits! Here are a few of my favorite images from Ms. Jen's class at Bright Horizons on the MA north shore!
