A tremendous passion exists in my heart for illustrating children's books. Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved to draw and paint as well as read books. Currently, I am following my life long dream of illustrating children's books and even writing some. I graduated magna *** laude from the University of Bridgeport with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration and was awarded the ECAC academic and athletic award. While writing and illustrating children's books, I also freelance as an art director/graphic designer. Born and raised in New York, I have traveled extensively and have lived and worked overseas in South East Asia (Singapore), Greece, New York, Las Vegas, and Houston as an illustrator, art director and graphic designer. Currently, I reside with my husband and three children in Houston, TX. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, running and photography.
