About

My first picture book is here! Khalida and the Most Beautiful Song is available at your favorite bookstore. I am an author-illustrator, art teacher and mother from New York City. In 2015, I graduated with an MFA from the Illustration as Visual Essay Program at School of Visual Arts. In addition to traditional schooling, I also owe credit to these incredible kid lit resources: Underdown.org, SCBWI, 12x12Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, and The Children's Book Podcast.

In art, I aim to find emotion and light.  Watercolor, gouache, acrylics, graphite, ink and pastels are my go-to tools. I prefer the grit of traditional media, with some digital finesse.  If you think I'd be a good fit for your project, I'd love to hear from you!

I may be the most animal-obsessed person you've ever met, and channel that love into a pet portrait side business, MyAnimalArt.com, and a collection of art about animal protection and humane education, ConsiderAnimals.com.
