As a kid my “dream job” was to create the art for the stories in Cricket Magazine which I borrowed from my neighbor Sue. Fast forward 20 years and my first job as a children’s artist was creating a puzzle page for Spider Magazine - so almost! Dreams do come true!
I use watercolor, collage, acrylic, colored pencil, and usually finish up in Photoshop. I love to draw little people, especially babies, create cute animal characters, silly lettering styles, and fun puzzles and games for kids.
My magazine illustrations are featured in High Five Magazine, Highlights for Children, Spider, LadyBug, and Kindermusik International Magazine.
I create educational artwork for Gryphon House, Peter Li Publishing, Oxford University Press, Brown Publishing Network, William Sadlier, Rigby, and Scholastic.
My published books include:
Papa Jethro (KarBen Publishing)
Traveling Babies (Northword Books for Young Readers)
The Golden Rule, God Blesses Me, and I’m His Lamb (Standard Publishing)
Princess Jeweliana’s Party (Readers Digest Childrens Publishing)
Silver Bells (Harper Festival)
I will be starting a new book with Tiger Tales this summer. Yay!
I work in my studio in Coldwater, Ohio.
