When I was little I spent many quiet hours transported by the lush images in my picture books. Now, as a professional illustrator, I strive to create beautiful paintings for children that will uplift, delight and inspire. I graduated with honors from Ringling College of Art and Design. Upon graduation I received a scholarship to continue my studies in painting at the South Florida Art Institute. My illustrations, paintings and portraits have appeared in international and national magazines, greeting cards, children’s books and fine art prints.
