Draw, Jessica, draw, and don't waste time!

Michelangelo once said, "Draw, Antonio, draw, and don't waste time!" What good advice that is.

I came to art as a very young child. I remember asking for a sketch book for a birthday or Christmas present when I was maybe six or seven. My mom bought me a small, grey-covered ringed sketchbook. In fact, I still have it; it's filled with marker drawings of superheroes of my own design and pencil sketches of my dog. Though it was the first of many, I will always keep the first evidence of my love of art close to my heart. I eventually graduated college with a degree in Studio Art and Art History, with a concentration in Illustration.

In contrast to my early discovery of art-making, I came to be an art historian much later, but it really started with a love affair with Bernini and Michelangelo in the ninth and tenth grades. I didn't know it then, but flipping through some art history books was going to change my life. After many years of toil and a year abroad in Rome, I eventually earned my master's degree and my Ph.D. in Art History. I now teach college-level students in New York City to find the beauty and humor of art. Though I work by day as a professor of Art History, my first love will always be creating art. When I'm drawing, I feel like that child again.

In my shop, I draw mostly animals: magical, often musical animals. The way I'd like to think that they are when we go to sleep at night. They remind you of a world of fairytales and myths, where things are not what they seem. I work mainly in pencil for the level of control it offers. I offer cards, high quality prints, and pillows with my magical animals on them. Please enjoy!

    I am an art historian and an illustrator living in NYC with my dog Ludo. I'm inspired by that magical world that we can't see, or that we choose not to see. I go crazy with pencils. See for yourself.

I take the utmost care in packaging my products to ensure a safe delivery. All cards are packed in a clear envelope. I tie each package with a satin ribbon. I mail in rigid mailers.

Giclée prints are backed with archival backing boards and protected in acid-free sleeves. They are tied with a ribbon and packed in a rigid mailer so your little beauties will arrive in perfect condition.
