I'm an Illustrator specializing in children's book illustration. I was born in New York but raised in the Poconos (Pennsylvania) and have lived in Philadelphia since 2014. Educated in architectural design at Tyler school of Art. Background in oil painting
Comfortable in digital and traditional mediums, especially oils. The design language of technical drawings has been a huge influence on how I build most of my work. Big fan of color and light. Also, a touch of the surreal every now and then is always welcome.
We stand on the shoulders of giants. Please check out the work of Nancy Ekholm Burkert, Lisbeth Zwerger, Paolo Domeniconi, Owen Pomery and Edward Powe. For the O.G. illustrators I love, check out N.C. Wyeth, Gustav Doré, and Edmund Dulac.
