I am a children’s book illustrator and have illustrated over 23 books. I love composition, design, simplicity, and color. For book work, the two styles I work in are flat gouache painting, or collage. I love color relationships, and different patterns and textures.

I also like to make pet and animal portraits using my painted flat color style with a collaged border. These small works of art are like little jewels of color that sing and make me happy! My bracelets are also a celebration of color along with different bead textures, sizes, and brilliance.

I studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, I am Mom to three teenagers, and work in my home studio where my cats keep me company.
