About the Artwork
Wizard of Oz, Acrylic on wood
Asleep in the Poppies, Acrylic on wood
I created these as part of a collection of Wizard of Oz illustrations. Both are painted with acrylic paints on wood panels. For the cover, I painted the main elements, created the hand drawn type, and then assembled the illustration in Photoshop.
I received a BFA in Graphic Design from Texas State University in 1997. Wanting to focus on my passions for art and children's books, I recently began working as an independent illustrator and designer. In my artwork, I draw inspiration from plants and animals. I typically paint with acrylics on various types of wood.
