I have been creating illustration and hand lettering since1982, using paper & ink as my primary medium.  There’s a compelling textural magic that occurs when brush, pen, ink and paper come together. The work is manipulated digitally and easily refined. In addition to illustration “style 1”, I have developed another style, “style 2”,  which is digitally produced. It is fast, flexible, and efficient, and also fun and spontaneous.

My clients range from large enterprises such as PaperMate, Olive Garden Restaurants, Proctor & Gamble, Workman Publishing, The Flamingo Hotel, and Kraft Foods, to much smaller “boutique” companies of many kinds. I find them all rewarding to create for, because each one has its own unique face to put forward and personality to reveal.

If you talk to the art directors and designers who have worked with me, you’ll hear that I am adaptive, conceptually inventive, committed, dependable, positive and prompt. From cookbooks to a cat haiku poetry book, logos big to icons small, print ads and packaging, even a flip-book.....every project is an opportunity to do the work I love and to share it with the world.

I hope you’ll take a look at the other sections of my website, as I am also an art quilter, polymer artist and teacher of both. It’s no coincidence that my illustration and lettering spills over into these other media, and influences them in surprising ways.


Please contact me with any questions you might have, or to just say hello. And, if you’re a Facebook fan, visit my Facebook page, where you’ll find additional new illustrations, quilts and polymer art.
