Thanks for visiting my cozy little corner of the internet.
I have illustrated many books for kids including ORANGUTANKA: A STORY IN POEMS by Margarita Engle (Holt), THE PICKWICKS' PICNIC by Carol Brendler (Clarion), and the ADA LACE series by Emily Calandrelli (Simon & Schuster).
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 daughter Zoey.
Lucky to have worked with all of these folks:
Feeding Minds Press
Penguin Random House
Simon & Schuster

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! I'm currently working on a little school visit package. Please contact me for more information on this!
And Book Tours!
I recently went on a mini MA book tour for The Pickwicks' Picnic and had a blast! Here are some of my favorite images from Book Ends, The Blue Bunny, Brookline Booksmith, and The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art!
