Mysterious Under Sea Creatures- the octopus has always fascinated me...


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 eight 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! last year The Ugly Duckling" . was published. "The Little Red Hen" and  "Jack and the Beanstalk" are in the wings waiting their turn...!

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.
