Creative. Intuitive. Collaborative. On time.
Published children's book illustrator and author with a passion to interpret manuscripts with whimsy, texture and color. I thrive on the collaboration and creative process with an author, to ensure a quality, marketable end product.
As a past marketing-exec, I understand the process, importance of detail, communication and deadlines. I am uniquely qualified with both the creative and astute business experience.
Illustrations provided in many mediums ~ watercolor, graphite, pen and ink and any combinations such as the unique graphite and gouache combination I used for one author's book (see portfolio). I will work with you to determine a unique illustration style suited specifically to your project, through a series of initial renderings for your choice of treatment.
From loose sketches and treatment options, through to final illustration, you will be in control as I listen well, and in response, communicate updates throughout the process.
Tweaking, rearranging or just a new creative direction? I am with you every step of the way as we create a product YOU are thrilled with.
Time is not on your side? I am very detailed, efficient, and in 20+ years, have never missed a deadline. You are in good hands here.
Too good to be true? Think not! I can provide both author and publisher references upon request.
Let's get creating!
