About

I'm an illustrator living and drawing on the Maine coast. My illustrations blend traditional and digital media, mixing watercolor, ink, pencil and collage. I've created illustrations and lettering for a range of clients, including Galison/Mudpuppy, Simon & Schuster, Random House, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Penguin Books. Here's a list of books I've illustrated.

I’m inspired by vintage textiles, folk art, mystery novels, the New England landscape and long-forgotten ephemera. In addition to book illustration, I also create mixed media artwork that blends drawing and embroidery, portraiture and needlework.

When not drawing, I can usually be found with my nose in a book, in front of my sewing machine or out of doors exploring.
