Artist Message


I was born in San Francisco, California and almost arrived on the Golden Gate Bridge. I couldn't wait to get out and grab some crayons to draw on my bedroom wall. This early creative beginning sent me on the path to becoming an artist. I graduated with a B.A. in studio Art from Marymount College.

Over the years, I've illustrated and designed for newspapers, greeting card companies, corporate graphic departments and publishing empires.

In 2010 I took time out from the commercial world to re-discover my art and to create images that reflect my own authentic voice. Though not entirely self-taught, my art evokes a whimsical contemporary folk art style, not unlike the characters I used to draw as a young artist. My signature style has found favor with collectors and Art Directors seeking a fresh look for their product.

My colorful whimsical work is tailored for the children's and greeting card/stationary market and the food/beverage market. Character development with attention to facial expression is my strong suit. I'm also a published gag and article writer which feeds my fine art. I have strong communication skills and work hard to keep my client updated on our projects.

Currently my work can be seen on a Connecticut-based gourmet ice cream line.


I paint and draw by hand to keep my images spontaneous and fresh. I do scan in my art into Photoshop, clean it up, and save at high res before emailing my client.

I reside with my antique dealer (vintage electonics radio and hi-fi) husband and two chubby house rabbits in the third oldest house (honest!) in Connecticut.

I look forward to helping your product pop with a fresh new look!
