I've been drawing for as long as I can remember. When I was growing up, I was the kid in school that always was being asked to draw this, or that. Little did I know then, that being an artist would turn out to be a lifelong passion & adventure. As I grew older I went to art school and studied design, drawing, painting & advertising. I received my degree in Painting & worked for several years in Advertising & Publishing, before opening my own Illustration Studio. Most of my assignments come from children's book publishing, but I do get involved in other projects, as well. It's been fun...& here I am!
My subjects can be wide ranging & change from day to day. I like working on a variety of different ideas, but I always try to keep things simple, lighthearted, & hope to get a smile from you too. I'm inspired by the world around me, my imagination & usually a good cup of coffee.
