Illustration is a process of collaboration. Good collaboration comes from clear communication and an organized process. Building the absolute best work hinges on inventiveness, reliability and effective communication.


Because of this, it’s important for me to be accessible to my clients, that means I promptly reply to emails, texts or phone calls. I put in the hours and work that days that a project needs to be completed so I can deliver on time (or early if possible).


To date I have developed numerous children's books for small publishers (bloo turtle, puppy dogs & ice cream) and many self published authors. I've also illustrated card games, board games and numerous t-shirts over the years. 


In that time I have developed a (nearly) pain free process. This process puts you in the driver's seat of the creative process so you can see where I am going from the very beginning!


When our collaboration is completed, I can provide you with whatever type of digital file you need for your job! My goal is to have delivered a product that fits all your needs and is as inspired and imaginative as we can make it.


I'd love to hear from you so we can start to discuss what we can design together!


Thanks for your time and consideration.
