About

I’ve been drawing forever and there are two subjects I find myself often turning to: fashion and sports.

My drawings of fashion are really my wish list of all the major designer clothes I’ll buy someday. The photographs in magazines like Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar are works of art themselves and I like trying my own interpretation of those fashion shoots.

Drawing athletes in moti0n is a challenge for me and so I do that to keep improving. If the drawing looks like it’s slightly risen off the page, then I’ve succeeded. I’m much harder on myself for these drawings than others.

I’ve written and illustrated four children’s books based on my childhood: The Sisters, The Sisters’ Christmas Tale, The Sisters and the Cousins, and The Sisters’ Week at the Lake. I also cowrote a novel with Greg Martini called Life or Something Like It at Mallard High. We are donating 50% of the royalties from the novel to Make-A-Wish.

Most recently is the cookbook Mangia Mania and all the royalties from this will be given to Rachael Ray’s charity, Yum-O.

  8. My favorite work is the floral designs. The flowers are pretty,delicate, and the line quality is fantastic. I seem to chop with my mark making, so I am not suited to ink work. You nailed it!
