Biography

I am a Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) graduate, with a BFA in Illustration.
I have been a freelance illustrator since 1989, specializing in publications for kids-- for their education and entertainment. I also illustrate for grownups when a whimsical piece of art is needed to perk up a page!
My illustrations run the gamut from traditionally-created to digitally-created, with stops in-between.
I've also begun a second business, with different product lines made with fiber/fabric. Currently, I am designing & creating finger puppets, pillows, tea & egg cozies, stuffed toys and miniatures. I have been exhibiting @ craft shows, as well as selling items via online and "brick & mortar" shops. My work has been on display at Providence Children's Museum, was part of the group show, "Stitch Wars Strikes Back!" in Lauderhill, Florida, and can currently be seen at the Florence Griswold Museum's "Wee Faerie Village in the Land of Oz" outdoor exhibit in Old Lyme, Connecticut.
