Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $13

I am a freelance artist/illustrator who specializes in children's books, portraits, landscapes and animals, though I'll turn my hand to anything. I always work with two objectives in mind: to do justice to the subject matter and to satisfy the client's expectations. At this time, I have illustrated thirteen books, designed covers, and worked on approximately fifty commissions for clients across the country. Most of that work was done in graphite or watercolor, but I also work in pen and ink, gouache, acrylic, and pastels.

I am a member of SCBWI and the Northern Plains Watercolor Society, and very experienced in creating photo-real pictures and illustrations of people, animals, and landscapes in graphite, watercolor, and pastel.
