I am a visual development student at Academy of Art University. I aspire to always create art that is both technically and conceptually inspiring.

Please message me if you have any questions! I can't wait to work with you!
I have been a professional, published children's book illustrator since 2003. I am a longtime, well respected member of the Society of Children's Book Authors & Illustrators, (SCBWI). I am proficient in Adobe Photoshop and use it for all my digital art. Occasionally I work in traditional mediums as well, including Acrylic, pencil, prismacolor pencil, pen & ink, workcolor, etc. In addition, I have produced graphic art for printed products, websites, blogs and businesses throughout the State of Florida. I have also had written works published, and I am the moderator for the critique group, "The Yellow Brick Road", which I created and developed in 2009. To the best of my knowledge, it is the longest running, largest children's book critique group available on-line! _____________________________________________________________ My accomplishments in children’s book illustration include but are not limited to: "The Legend of the Eagle Feather", Shadow Wind Publishing, LLC, 2015.

I do not gamble with my reputation by illustrating poorly written literature. If I feel that the manuscript is suitable, then I open up a conversation with the writer/client to discuss all the wonderful possibilities! Generally, the process is simple. I sketch out one page at a time. With each page, the client has the opportunity to request three minor changes at no additional charge. When the final sketch is approved by the client, color is added and the illustration is complete. I then send the client a copy of the final illustration and we move on to the next page and repeat the process until all pages are done and the book is ready for assembly. The author/client is involved in each and every illustration, and no illustration goes through to publication without his/her approval! In a world where many Children's book illustrators work looks similar, my attention to detail gives my drawings a distinct style. I can guarantee that your book will be very special. With each project I acquire, I do my level best to improve upon my last body of work, bringing a fresh approach and a renewed energy.

An illustrator is a visual artist who creates drawings and illustrations for use in advertisements, books, magazines, packaging, greetings cards, clothing design and newspapers. The possibilities for your business are endless - illustrations are the perfect finishing touch to your graphic design, while illustrated infographics are proven to be far more engaging than plain text. Plus, illustration has the benefit that the only thing limiting you is your imagination - if you want a dragon you can have a dragon.
The types of work illustrators are hired for is extremely varied. Illustrators are hired for projects ranging from editorial, fashion, storyboard, technical and book illustration. Although illustrators are flexible in the kinds of projects they take on, they usually specialise in a particular style. These include traditional styles like pencils, pens, watercolour and pastels, as well as digital art made using software such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Often, a project might require both, with sketches first drawn up by hand and colouring then completed digitally.
