Over the last ten years, I have illustrated over fifty children's books which include picture books, readers, and board books. As a free-lance artist, I have also designed greeting cards, gift wrap and fabric. I graduated from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and continue to live in the Bay Area with a nutty terrier named Mack.

My illustration process is a hybrid of pencil sketches, hand-painted backgrounds and textures which I scan into Photoshop and then manipulate digitally. This gives me the ability to submit high resolution art in layers and to also make alterations to the art quickly. I love to create work that is fun and engaging for kids with lots of details and humor.
