Hi there!

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 have a BFA in Illustration and a Diploma in Graphic Design from Lesley University College of Art and Design. Before transitioning to a full time freelance career in children’s books, I was a lead artist at FableVision Studios for nearly 10 years.  

I love drawing nature, animals, and working on projects that require a little bit of research.

I currently live just south of Boston with my illustrator husband Keith Zoo, our fluffy orange cat Timmy, and our daughter Zoey.

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!
