ABOUT ME:

I'm in love with colors and shapes! And with pictures that evoke a mood and tell a story.
I'm fortunate to live and work in a small mountain town in California, and to be able to draw and paint for my livelihood.

I've been illustrating children's books for more than twelve years. I work in acrylic, ink, and sometimes Photoshop.

Some recent titles include:

The Dollmaker's Gift
by award-winning writer Sashi Fridman, a tale of turn-of-the century Jewish immigration, to be released soon by Merkos Publishing.

Much, Much Better, by Rabbi Chaim Kosofsky, an Iraqi Jewish folktale, which received an Eric Hoffer Children's Book Award and a Sydney Taylor Notable Book Award.
Hachai Publishing.

The King in the Field, by Dina  Rosenfeld, adapted from a medieval Hasidic parable. Hachai Publishing.

Sybil Ludington, Freedom's Brave Rider, an amazing story of a young girl who alerted militia in the Revolutionary War. What she did was much more difficult and dangerous than Paul Revere's famous ride. Zaner-Bloser.

I also paint textural abstracts and landscapes. I teach a summer class for preteens at the Idyllwild Arts Academy which includes making comic books and puppets, and building a miniature village.

I studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute, and illustration at UCLA and the Art Academy of los Angeles.
