Hi, all!  I’m a New York/ New Jersey girl living in Burbank, California with my husband and 3 kids. I’ve worked professionally as a production designer for 14 years, most notably as a senior designer and sculptor at the Macy’s Parade Studio from 1999 to 2011.
I met my husband while prop building and art directing on the preschool TV show Blues Clues, and I still have a soft spot for shows that spark kids' imaginations and get them excited to learn.  (That said, I can also identify all four Ninja Turtles by their weaponry because sometimes media is just fun so everybody be cool.)
 I’m an active member of SCBWI, a winner of the "Professional's Choice" at the SCBWILA Illustrator's day in 2015 , and a graduate of the illustration department at RISD ('98).

My picture book "The Wompananny Witches Make One Mean Pizza" was  published by ABRAMS Children's in the fall of 2017.

 

 

I was so unbelievably honored to be featured in this beautiful piece by Serena Creative.

I got to speak with Katie Ward of "The Enthusiasm Enthusiast" about making art for a living, the Wompananny Witches, and my constant anxiety over my kids activities! Have a listen!
