Artist’s Statement: I am a New England-based illustrator, creating art with a focus on story and narrative. I spent my childhood playing in the woods, being read to by my parents, and drawing nonstop — a combined group of ingredients that has led to my work as a children’s picture book illustrator. In addition to book illustration, I also have a focus on surface design and textile work, as well as embroidery. I am influenced by the flora and fauna of the Northeast, mystery novels, folk art, vintage ephemera, as well as the work of Tasha Tudor, Carl Larsson and Eric Ravilious.
