I was trained as a graphic designer/illustrator in Boston, MA over 25 years ago. I have continued to work in the field ever since. Most that time I have been self-employed. I love making, writing and drawing children's picture books. I am a huge fan of the medium. Among my favorite author-illustrators are Chris Van Allsburg, Eric Carle, Maurice Sendak, Barry Moser. I have kids of my own and when they were younger, I used draw silly stories for them routinely.
