Born & raised on Long Island, I received a BFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in 1987. I worked as a freelance illustrator, textile designer and part time art teacher until 1990 when I moved to Arizona. After acquiring my Masters Degree in Education from Northern Arizona University, I became a full time art teacher. After many wonderful years of teaching, I retired and moved back to the Northeast. It is here is that I have decided to pursue my first love, picture book illustration and writing stories for children. I hope you enjoy viewing my books as much as I've enjoyed creating them.
