I spent my childhood in Connecticut, drawing, writing radio shows, and inventing time machines in the creative circle of my sisters and brother. My first word was "MAKE" (it's true!) and I guess I've been doing that ever since. When I grew up (not much taller, mind you!) I moved to Boston to earn my BFA in Illustration at The Art Institute of Boston.
Today, I work and live in a town called Quincy, a T-ride from the heart of Boston, with my character-designing husband, Matt, and long-tailed black cat named Serif (who answers "meow" if you ask him a question).
My client work spans publishing for children, advertising for luxury living spaces, magazine covers, and novels for tweens. I'm grateful every day for opportunities that let me daydream for a living...
