I specialize in creating beautiful art for  children's books, editorial and advertising projects & art for licensing.

The way I view the world is in the details, 

the bark of a tree, the thick fur of a fox, the print of a dress.

All my work is lovingly created, traditionally,

on paper, with paint.


Experience includes illustrating over 30 books, in addition to book covers, posters, pet portraits, cards, print ads, calendars, fabric collections, puzzles, games and collectibles. What can I create for you ?

   I am an illustrator 


Mostly, I work ( paint, which is more like playing! ) .    When I'm not working ( painting / playing ) I can be found in the garden playing with flowers and heirloom vegetables, In the kitchen cooking things...Playing with food, Inside or out playing with Baci the Fluffy Corgi, Writing...more like work, Practicing my rapidly rusting Italian...working at it, Working out ( does anyone play out?) and Spending time ( more playing ) with my  professional jazz drummer husband ( listening to him play ). I rarely sleep, although I do dream a lot.
