I am a professional illustrator of children’s picture books whose style would be most appropriate for children between 0 and 7 year olds. I create illustrations which combine hand drawn lines and digital elements. I am a self taught artist and I am constantly working on improving my craft.
I love whimsical and soft paced stories where the main characters are little people and where the messages are subtle. I enjoy fiction most of all but am open to consider non fiction if the story resonates with me.
I have illustrated several picture books in the last five years, and am always working on new projects, whether self initiated or private commissions. What I enjoy the most is drawing children. You can see some of my illustrations here.
