Hi there!

I'm an illustrator of many books for kids including ORANGUTANKA: A STORY IN POEMS by Margarita Engle (Holt), THE PICKWICKS' PICNIC by Carol Brendler (Clarion, Fall '17), and the ADA LACE series by Emily Calandrelli (Simon & Schuster, 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 latest addition -- daughter Zoey!

You can find me on twitterinstagramtumblr, and facebook.
