Illustrator

     I've been working as a children's book illustrator most of my life. I specialize in historic and multicultural subject matter, but recently have been expanding my portfolio towards younger children, with animals, and a more playful look.

My traditional work is watercolor.

 In the last few years, I've added a textured look using colored pencil.
