I LOVE ILLUSTRATING MY CHILDREN'S BOOKS AS MUCH AS I ENJOY WRITING THEM!

Children's Book Illustration

Bringing a children’s book story to life using beautifully composed imagery and the right color palettes is what makes my illustrator heart sing. There’s just nothing like seeing a series of illustrations make a children’s book absolutely come alive!

Comic Book Illustration

My style of comics drawing tends to be minimalist and simplified. I have so much fun translating a story or narrative into comic-themed sketches, then illustrating each scene, one at a time.

Book Cover Design

“Never judge a book by its cover” is advice applicable to most things in life EXCEPT for actual book cover design work! Because people truly DO judge books by their covers (or thumbnails) before they decide to purchase them.
