I have been teaching visual art at Wachusett Regional High School in Holden, MA and Ayer Shirley Regional High School in Ayer, MA since 2016 and 2005 respectively. I graduated from Syracuse University in 2002 with a degree in Illustration and from Tufts University with an M.A.T. in Art Education in 2005.
My two children, Dillon and Evelyn, inspired me to return to illustration. I wrote and illustrated my first books (unpublished) as portraits of them both. My first fully illustrated picture book was self-published by authors Karen and David Richards in 2020.
I am most interested in illustrating non-fiction narrative picture books. Interests outside of drawing and painting include running and spending lots of time outdoors in nature.
