I've illustrated over 50 books for children, books of every conceivable sort. I enjoy doing different styles... from designed digital art in Photoshop to paintings with watercolor and pen-brush.

I'm now also writing and illustrating my own stories and e-book apps, which is fun. I work mostly in a whimsical style with the goal of conveying lots of feeling in my artwork... happy, sad, sneaky, mad, hopeful, afraid... or whatever. I'd guess that's about the main point of any illustration. I work in both traditional & digital mediums... often combining both mediums for best advantage. I find that Photoshop greatly expands the artist's toolbox. The combination of traditional and digital mediums allows for amazing new possibilities... and lots of fun.

I have a degree in English and studied illustration at the Parsons School of Design in New York City with Maurice Sendak, among other wonderful teachers. I've done many book projects with Mercer Mayer and Rosemary Wells, as a ghost illustrator. I live in Seattle, where I enjoy the natural wonders of the Northwest with my family.
