I am passionate about painting drawing, illustration and concept development. I love to create characters with a specialty in animals and people. I have a BFA from SUNY Purchase, where I studied with internationally acclaimed illustrator Antonio Frasconi and an MA in Art Education from New York University. I live in NYC with my linguist husband and son.
