Children's Book Illustration

For the last10years I have been associated with Hathaway House Books LLC, a publisher who is committed to fine quality books. My illustrations appear in seven books at this time- "Princess and the Pea", "Shoemaker and the Elves", "Town Mouse and Country Mouse"', "Cinderella" and "The Hare and the Tortoise." We have learned that "Tortoise" has won  a Gold Seal from "Mom's Choice Awards! Joining Cinderella will be ""The Ugly Duckling" (shown above)  "Jack and the Beanstalk" and "The Little Red Hen" 

Please Contact me here for orders of books.

I work in watercolor and colored pencils. Animal illustration is my favorite, and it is always my intention to honor the integrity of the creatures. I have loved illustration since my own childhood, and am happy to have been chosen to illuminate these time honored stories.
