For the last 9 years 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! ""The Ugly Duckling" will be available in September of 2019. "Jack and the Beanstalk" will also be published this September- a sneak preview at the bottom of this page!

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.
