I'm a full-time freelance illustrator with over 20 years experience. I enjoy working with clients to help bring their dreams and ideas to life. My preferred style is a clean, whimsical, cartoon-based visual, although I've done plenty of work tending to the more realistic and even painterly. A strong sense of design and dynamic color usage characterizes my style. I work closely with my clients to ensure they get exactly what they want, while at the same time offering them input and "aesthetic coaching" if the need arises.
I also enjoy creating logos and corporate identities as a change of pace.
I typically use digital methods in my work (Painter, Photoshop, Illustrator), but can easily transition to traditional illustration, which is how my career started and how I was taught.
Children's book illustration and cartooning seem to be the bulk of my work. I particularly enjoy working directly with kidlit authors and art directors. Telling a powerful visual story is the gas in my engine! I've worked remotely with clients nationwide.
