I have been an artist since I was 4 and a freelance illustrator for over 20 years. My style usually combines my ‘favorite’ elements, nature, smiling animals, plants, flowers, stars, leaves, birds, fish, bugs, etc. Fun details and patterns. I love the challenge of an editorial theme, or showing the kind of bright and whimsical art I think children love to look at over and over. A creative visual to add to an editorial piece.
Although my bright style could be designed using a graphics program, my illustrations are hand painted because I love the process. I still find it as fun to do as when I was a kid! The peace and joy of drawing and painting keeps me very connected to the art. I hope you will feel that too.
