I'm always happy to attend book fairs, festivals and conferences especially this one. I was a program presenter at the first Millbrook Book Festival and a few more after that. Scott Meyer, who founded the festival, was a great friend and supporter of local authors and illustrators. I look forward to meeting a lot of book fans!

...and now back to my blog. I haven't posted here in quite a while because I've been busy working on illustration projects and paintings and also trying to keep up with all my social media platforms, now a necessity in the marketing world. I'm on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as well as my agent's site, my illustrators group - picturebookartists.org, SCBWI portfolio, Behance portfolio /Linkedin, Pinterest, Tumbler and my personal websites....whew. That's a job in itself and truly I can't keep everything updated all the time but I'm back here now so here's some artwork I've been creating. Enjoy it and feel free to contact me through any of my social media sites!

Time has flown by and every day has been spent creating artwork for some interesting books. A lot of research time and long hours spent creating accurate illustrations that look good to young readers. Just a few examples...
"MAPLE TREE FARM" Series
"ALEXANDER HAMILTON" Coloring Book

Here's my latest book, "The Little Cookie". It's a retelling of The Gingerbread Man in a way that makes it fun for boys and girls. This story has been illustrated so many times by various artists so it was great to put my spin on it too. In keeping with my signature accuracy and detail I made the characters true to life but a bit more lively feeling. There's also a little mouse in each illustration so don't forget to look for it!

I'm currently at work ons many projects which will take all of the summer and maybe even the fall, to complete. Every illustrator likes to stay busy so I'm happy to be drawing and painting away! Here a are a few illustrations from the book I'm working on now in the Maple Tree Farm series for Pioneer Valley Books.
