I live at the top of a hill, near the edge of a forest in semi-rural New Hampshire, USA. There is a magic wand on my desk and a dragon in my basement. Everything else is nearly normal.

Over 60 children's books bear my name as illustrator or author/illustrator. However, like many illustrators, I have been drawing and painting as long as I can remember. My degree from Rutgers University included a double major: Art and Education.

When authors come to me for illustrations for their books, I need them to know that I will work with them only with a signed contract in place. I do not work on spec.

If authors wish to self publish, I ask to know more about the work they are planning and the subject matter. If possible, I like to see the text or a part of it.That is the best way for me to tell if it is something for which I can do my very best work.

ou may find many of my books and books I have illustrated on the BOOKS page and there are links to book sellers who have the books available.

Most of the time I am busy creating illustrations for other authors and writing and illustrating my own stories. If you want to contact me about your book or project please use the CONTACT page.

The links to the left on this page will lead you to various portfolio sites where my work is featured.

Here are some places you can find more of my work.

Nova, the rescue cat that rescued me. That's just what rescued animals do for us. Think about how you can assist a shelter or an animal in need of a loving forever home.
