I grew up in Southern Maryland, but have lived in Ireland since 1994. I have been painting my whole life, but have moved specifically into children's book illustration in 2012, where I have illustrated about 30 books. Throughout my painting career, I have also done various jobs including wall murals, private painting commissions, greeting card illustrations, and one-off illustrations for specific situations, and exhibited in galleries locally and internationally. In 2014, I received the Kuykendall Award for Excellence in Illustration for my artwork in Nancy Scalabroni's book 'CougaMongaMingaMan.' I will consider various art jobs and am happiest to work in traditional mediums of watercolour, ink, and acrylics.
