Hello, I am a freelance illustrator in central Maine. I collect mugs, drink tea, observe the woodland creatures around my home and paint the inspiration they give to me. I love the smell of old books and the written word inside of them -- as well as the whisper of fall leaves and fresh autumn apples. Inspirational people include Beatrix Potter, Jan Brett, and Shel Silverstein. I hope to acquire the same impression they gave to me and to spread my messages to children as they did. Illustration children's books is my dream, and maybe along the way I will collect and sell antiquated stories and new journeys in a small nook for selling books and hanging my own art.

Common items you will find in my shop will be original paintings, as well as reproductions, cards, jewelry, and many more created items.
