F A Q
Where can I find your books?
I’m currently seeking representation and looking to connect with a publisher for the above books and several other projects.
What is your children’s book writing and illustration experience and credentials?
I’m a prize-winning poet with a Children’s Book Illustration Certificate from the Rhode Island School of Design. I’ve studied picture book writing and illustration at Pratt Manhattan, and received illustration awards and recognitions (“People’s Choice”) at SCBWI’s national conference in New York City and in Connecticut’s “Emerging Voices” contest for picture book author-illustrators. I was also a finalist for SCBWI’s prestigious Kimberley Colen Award in the illustrated picture book category.
How do you create your illustrations?
I mix traditional mediums (including gouache, watercolor, oil, pencil) with digital elements- I keep trying different approaches until the look and feel of the art reflects my vision.
Can I purchase prints of your illustrations?
My Etsy site is under construction - please contact me in the meantime if you wish to purchase illustrations.
I have questions … where can I get more information?
Please reach out and send me a note- happy to answer any questions or share more information!
