About

I am an artist and illustrator inspired by materials and their ability to convey emotion as well as in using them to tell stories. My children’s illustration is influenced by Japanese children’s book illustration, the Golden Age of children’s illustration, and post-impressionism. I hope to create worlds that are completely believable by children and that shy away from excessive cuteness or sweetness. Further influences include writing, decoration, fashion and costume, symbolism, and the graphic arts.
