I was born in CT. I've been living in New York for 17 years. I have a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute. I come from a large family.
I had my own decorative arts business for 12 and half years.
Illustrating, and creating artwork is what I do best, especially illustrating, baby toddler books, picture books, graphic novels and educational materials. I'm hoping more of those type of jobs come my way.
I love reading all types of children book literature and love supporting my colleague's work, either by buying their books, and giving them moral support.
Right now in my career, everything is very positive, and more book projects are slowly coming in.
I've illustrated a book called Hal, The Hamptons Hound and the Case of the Missing Puppies.
A book about a bloodhound detective in search for lost pets.
Susan Abrahams is the wonderful author behind this four legged flat foot and his trusty side kick, Tuesday, a tabby cat.
My husband and I have been married since 2001. He is my best friend and the wing beneath my wings.
I love creating artwork and all that it entails. I enjoy reading, traveling,photography, cooking, volunteering,gardening and playing tennis, taking long walks, going to the beach and shopping.
Thank you for your friendship and continued support.
I love being part of this community.
