I grew up just outside Washington, DC and received my BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. I currently reside in a Baltimore rowhouse with a drafting table and a cat. I published my first book, The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere, for National Geographic in 1999 and have worked relatively steadily since it’s publication as a freelance illustrator in the education market. My work is done on scratchboard before being rendered digitally as vectors. In that work I will often push for an expressionistic feel with the images to create a sense of motion and urgency.
