I have been a practicing visual artist for many years now and recently started a business painting murals, animal paintings, and children's portraits. I would like to add to that Children's Book Illustration, as I believe it is an excellent fit for my skills and interests.
I received my MFA in Painting from New York Academy of Art, a rigorous figurative school. In my paintings and murals I aim to give voice to the humorous charm of animals, capture children in their play and fantasy, and breathe visual life into stories I have always loved. Through painting commissions, murals and ultimately children's books, my goal is to inspire and enchant viewers while continuing to grow & explore my own playful self-expression.
