I’m a freelance artist and children’s book illustrator, with 15 years of professional experience. (I got my first book deal at age 14…not bad, eh?) I keep busy with murals, paintings, and just about any obscure art request you can think of. Most of the art I do for fun has a strong humorous/ whimsical/ downright-strange element to it; and if I can get a laugh, great! My inspiration comes from such gems as The Far Side and old Looney Tunes cartoons, mixed with a little Jim Henson and possibly a video game or two.
