Service Description

Hi! I'm a published children's book illustrator with professional experience working with editors, authors, art directors, and deadlines. I've been an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators since 2009.

I work in stylized realism; bright and colorful oil and acrylic paintings that capture the reader's interest and imagination. People and animals are my specialty. Fantastical subjects are my favorite. My passion for painting and illustrating results in projects that are professional and high-quality. My images are submitted to clients digitally.

Let me help you make a beautiful children's book! I have studied under the nation's top children's illustrators and know the ins and outs of what makes a great picture book. I can assist you with page layouts, designs, typefaces, you name it. Contact me today and let's great started!
