Author & Chief Creative Illustrator for Butterfield's Books
Being an independent Author & Digital Illustrator has been no easy feat. But, with a bit of diligence and dedication, I’ve managed to produce original work I’m proud of, as well as collaborate with local K.C MO studio artist & writer, Polly Alice McCann. I work hard to bring my clients’ visions to life in my own unique style — combining traditional hand drawing with multimedia in my illustrations.

THE 1ST PAGE
Hitch A Ride On The Color Express is still on the way!
Phew... the first publication of my very first Children's Book! I had NO IDEA how much work it would be. Yet, it was well worth it, and I am so thrilled to share this book with you! This video is a time lapse of the first page. We decided to start these illustrations with cut paper, colored pencils, and marker before polishing them on the computer. It took some time to do. Watch the video and see how its done!
I also had a second pair of hands to help me on this one - thanks Polly!
