About the Artwork
Boats for Papa (book endpapers), 2014, Pen and Watercolor
SCBWI Bulletin cover, 2016, Pen and Watercolor
The submitted works are from my first two picture books Boats for Papa and Before I Leave, both published by Neal Porter at Roaring Brook Press. My illustration style is inspired by classic picture books and is created in traditional mediums. I have a deep love of illustrating anthropomorphic animals and they are usually the center of my stories. With each book I make, I am meeting new woodland critters and uncovering each of their personal histories while building a world that they all live in.
