Trust and clear communication are essential in developing a book that is inspired.

I love what I do, and I do what I love; who could ask for more?

I've been illustrating for about 12 years now (yikes, I'm getting old!), with a published portfolio that includes about 20 children's books, hundreds of editorial and political cartoons, book covers and pretty much everything in between.

My work ranges from cartoon-like to realistic. I work with all media, from colored pencils to digital. My style is flexible, and I am constantly learning new tools to best suit each project.

What sets my work apart is that I don't approach my projects as a service provider. I see the illustration process as a collaborative effort, guided by the author's vision.

I have worked with new and established authors, and I can help with every step towards getting your book published. I take a lot of pride in the work I put out there and in making the process enjoyable.

Please contact me at for more samples, estimates, or questions. I am fluent in Italian, French and Spanish, in case that might be of any help.

I look forward to bringing your story to life!

Great work
by: Jeremy

I like your work and love the elephant and butterflies.

I am just publishing a small illustrated children's English-Spanish book and will keep your info on file in case I get some more bi-lingual work.

(I publish a few books each year.)
