A little about myself:
As a child I looked at pictures books but never read one, I would make up my own stories by looking at the pictures. I am a native New Yorker living in Queens.
I have illustrated nine picture books. The first one I worked on was “Angeline Jellybean” published in 2008 and a chapter book called “The Art of Science” I was working for a small publishing house called “4RV Publishing” based in Oklahoma, it was a good experience. I had been fortunate to be a contributing illustrator with “Berry Blue Haiku Magazine” and also “Stories for Children Magazine”, working alongside some very talented Editors, Art Directors, and Writers.
I have had the privilege of working for Michael Sporn Animation Inc. on many different titles including, “The Little Match Girl”, “Ira Sleeps Over”, “Abel’s Island” and many more.
I have a Bachelor degree from The School of Visual Arts NY and am a proud member of SCBWI.
A little about my artwork:
I always like to say that I add a voice; I interpret the words written on a page by telling the story behind the story working with pen and ink and then digitally paint, I fuse old techniques with modern ones to create a world that every drawing can speak to a child or grownups. In addition, by using color I can show movement, emotion, and depth. Color plays an important part in creating my artwork more than just putting red on a page I use color to help tell the story.
I don’t miss deadlines. I understand how important it is to get the job done in a timely fashion and I do my best to make sure that happens.
