Children's Illustration

Black & White

In 2005 I received a Certificate in Art for the Children's Market from the University of Washington. I have been a member of the Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators since 2006. These pieces were done for workshops, private commissions, and as part of my portfolio.

The Yearling

From The Yearling by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. “Fodder-wing’s silence was intolerable. Now he understood. This was death. Death was a silence that gave back no answer. Fodder-wing would never speak again.” The original version was my entry for the 2013 Tomie dePaola prize. This is my fourth or fifth stab at it, mostly experimenting with finding the right mix of media. Watercolor and black colored pencil
