I am an illustrator and painter living in Maine. I work in many different styles and mediums—acrylics, watercolor, oil, pen and ink, pencil, digital and any combination thereof. My art is colorful and unique and often infused with humor. I love to draw animals, people, nature and whatever else catches my imagination.


I am both inspired by and constantly amused by animals. I have an affinity for dogs and I like to have my dog, Mr. Gus by my side during all my adventures…

Me, age 6, at our cabin with a favorite local dog, Booger. Yes, I am feeding

him leftovers from our supper—hotdogs

and French fries! ...poor Booger!
