Highly detailed drawings and paintings, informed by years of painting from observation. I combine observation and imagination to invent alternate realities. Inspired by natural history illustrations, especially hand-colored engravings and lithographs. I work in various color and black and white media, depending upon the needs of the story and its atmosphere.
I can help you find your voice as an illustrator, prepare your portfolio for presentation, and offer useful feedback on your illustrated picture book. I'm also happy to share my experience in publishing and answer your questions about working with writers, editors, and agents.
