I've had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of project for commercials, television, theme park, and publishing. Every project is interesting and exciting in its own unique way. My goal is to create memorable, quality artwork that best fit the needs of the project.
Last spring I was commissioned to work on a middle-grade book Classy Crooks Club for a major publisher, Simon & Schuster. It was a fun story about a young girl who joins her grandmother in a secret heist club, made up of the unlikeliest band of thieves.
"Twelve-year-old AJ dreads spending an entire month living with her strict Grandma Jo. Grandma Jo wants nothing more than to transform her adventurous, fun-loving granddaughter into a prim and proper lady. But AJ’s dull summer takes a sharp turn when she discovers that her grandmother's "bridge group" is actually a heist club. But even the most respectable ladies can hide truly surprising secrets, and AJ finds she must decide for herself what it means to be one of the good guys."
Firenze's Light follows the journey of a little firefly who is too afraid to shine her light. She covers her light with her skirt until one day she meets a friend who encourages her to share her gifts. Firenze finds that she must decide if she will hide her light or let it shine for everyone to see!
My artistic style today has always been influenced by children's books artists that I grew up with such as Mary Blair and the Provensens. I hoped that one day I would publish my own and many years later I finally did. Firenze's Light is a children's book I created illustrations for over a year and a half.
