• After working as a graphic designer, art and creative director for 25+ years in the Bay Area, I am now settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I am focused on using my skills and background to create illustration and animation for editorial, publishing, design and children’s assignments.

  • Curiosity is the driving force behind everything I have ever done; from flying gliders to furniture design. Ultimately, curiosity is what helped me conquer my fear of spiders (except black widows, which can go ahead and drop dead). 

    Today, I share this curiosity through illustration, hoping to help children see the world with wonder.
