Hello! I am the illustrator of numerous books for children and author/illustrator of Señor Felipe's Alphabet Adventure, a Bank Street Best Children's Book. My paintings have appeared in children’s books, magazines, textbooks, as murals, limited edition prints, and are in private and museum collections. I have illustrated and written crafts and games for Highlights For Children Magazines, and have a poem included in a Lee Bennett Hopkins anthology. I am an active member of the SCBWI and currently serve as Indiana's Illustrator Coordinator. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY and work from my studio in Carmel, Indiana.
