Current Home: San Francisco, United States of America

I am a free-lance illustrator, living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. I knew I was going to be an artist when I created a paper mache lion in the eighth grade that grew so large, it had to be transported home in the trunk of my parent's Oldsmobile...with the lid up!

After graduating from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, I started my career illustrating covers for the Palo Alto Weekly. Since then I have produced artwork for picture books, cookbooks, magazines, educational publications and currently license my artwork on giftwrap, greeting cards and fabric.

I work digitally in Photoshop after scanning in my traditional artwork which is created in ink, watercolor and pencil.

I share my studio with an energetic Airedale Terrior named Mack, who makes sure my passion for illustrating is balanced with lots of long walks and outdoor activities.

My current clients include:

Viking Children's Books
Parragon Books UK
Kar-Ben Publishing
Design Design
Robert Kaufman Fabrics
Carras Publishing Co.
National Geographic School Publishing
