An Artist Who Knows Kids!

Defying the Monster
Mud Pies and Pillow Fights - An Artist Who Knows Kids!
I do book cover illustration, story-board illustration, conceptual illustration, and fine art. I am an explorer of all mediums...
...and I like to mix it up to see how I can push the limits while bringing in character, depth and story into my work.
For example I will sculpt a realistic figure or head out of clay, take photos, layer it with a painting in Photoshop, then mix it with different found objects to create a complete composition.
I also love to use watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil, pastel, charcoal and oils.
I take each project as an individual challenge and price it based on the difficulty and time required. I have a set hourly base fee, and I work fast.
I work based off of your ideas, and I send you small thumbnail sketches to show you how I can cultivate those ideas into a vision.
If you like them, we settle on a proposal and time frame, and then we get to work.
I have a great focus group, at home, of four kids who are bright and creative themselves; I often test ideas on them and their diverse groups of friends. (Boys and girls, ages 7-13). I also look at what is drawing kids in today and what can make your book more marketable.

Thank you and have a glorious day!
