About

Vultures and Owls and Skunks...Oh My!!

Around 2007, I started painting again after being away from the brush for ten years. A friend and colleague saw my work and asked me to illustrate and author a children's book about Tokyo, Japan. I loved the project and didn't want to stop drawing, so started this small production.

Many of my designs are animals. I very much enjoy subjects of all kinds, but living creatures have so much character, I find them the most interesting to draw.
