Andover, Ma

For as long as I can remember, I have been drawing and painting fun little characters.  I always knew that I wanted to be part of the creative art world.

I attended the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth majoring in Illustration, Graphic Design, and Jewelry Design. There, I was introduced to the business of children's book illustration. Feeling like this was a great fit for my art, I was determined to make it happen...And I did!

I have had the wonderful opportunity of being published by many publishing houses over the years such as Scholastic, Houghton Mifflin, Pelican, Highlights Magazine and Random House to name a few.

My painting skills have allowed me to expand my horizons to create collections of acrylic and mixed media on both paper and canvas which have been exhibited in juried shows- Art Expo Miami and New York. I was selected as one of the "Top Fifty Artists" to watch by Art Business News 2012. I am a juried member of the Rockport Art Association and Museum and a board member of the National Association of Women Artists, New York and Massachusetts Chapter.
