I am an illustrator who primarily works in the children’s market. I enjoy the process and challenge of creating pictures to accompany a great story. Everything from the character designs, layout, staging, pacing, lighting, colors, textures, and expressions all need to work together to enhance the text. The most successful illustrations draw the reader in not by simply repeating what is said in the text, but by adding another dimension to the story.
“The idea is to give the author and publisher not what they want, but what they never dreamed they could have.” – Shirley Hughes, Illustrator
Recent clients include Dinardo Design, Cambium Learning, Marshall Cavendish, Design Lab NYC, Mustard Seed Books, and Mutt Media.
